Environment & Waste Events You Can Participate in 2020

Paul's Rubbish

With the increasing awareness of climate change and rubbish problem around the world, everyone is looking to become involved in changing how we dispose waste and cleaning the environment for future generations. Taking action today will have tremendous effect in the future. Organisations and groups have started campaigns aimed towards changing the way we think and use everyday products. Recycling has become a big part of daily life with monetary incentives such as plastic bottle recycling. Nonetheless, we are still building towards a sustainable generation.

We have compiled a list of environment and waste events in 2020 that you can participate with the local community.

1) Clean Up Australia Day

What is it?

Plastic Free July started in 2011 as a way to educate and raise awareness on the pollution created by plastics. Plastic has become a big component of our lives which serves in all areas such as plastic utensils, plastic containers, plastic bags, plastic furniture and more. The event aims to encourage everyone to participate by reducing the number of plastic disposable products in July. Research has shown that once the habit of using less plastic is developed over a month, it becomes easier for individuals to start a plastic-free life.
