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.

This year we’re focusing on WASTE REDUCTION and asking you to #ContainYourWaste.

Whilst it’s certainly important to recycle and reuse, reducing waste right at the source is the most effective and efficient way to make a genuine impact in Australia, to decrease the amount of litter we find in our streets and public areas.

So, for 1 week, from August 15th to 21st we’re challenging you to choose an existing container from around the house – a jar, a tub, or a bucket – and contain the amount of waste you produce in that week to the capacity of your container

Together, we all have the power to #KeepAustraliaBeautiful
