KEEP AUSTRALIA BEAUTIFUL WEEK

DATE: 16th – 22nd August, 2021

Keep Australia Beautiful Week is held late August each year to raise awareness about the simple things we can all do in our daily lives to reduce our impact on the environment and encourage action.

Together, we all have the power to #KeepAustraliaBeautiful

This year we’re putting plastic in the spotlight as we try to reduce, reuse and recycle plastic to prevent it becoming litter. In the lead up to campaign week, we’re asking our community to put your plastic pledge forward on how you intend to reduce your plastic use in 2021.

Visit our KAB National website to stay up-to-date on the latest details for this year’s campaign.
