Get ready to help Clean Up Australia on Saturday 7th March 2021. We’ll shortly be releasing our annual Clean Up Australia Day badge to help support the cause.
Clean Up Australia Day 2021 will be held on Sunday 7 March. If you are getting your calendar ready for next year, please include this important day. All Scout Groups are strongly encouraged to register their site under the ‘youth’ category (please include the word Scout or Scouts in your site name). Make this the year Scouts have the most clean up sites and participants!
Thanks to the many Scouts that submitted their creative designs into our Clean Up Australia Day badge design competition! We’ll be contacting our winner soon and sharing the winning entry in early 2021.
Last year we sold 5856 badges! For each badge sold, 60c was donated to Clean Up Australia – that’s $3513.00 to help keep our parks, beaches and rivers clean.
If you are looking for a way to learn a bit more about the journey our litter takes, you could get involved in completing the Earth Tribe Tide Turners Plastic Challenge. The Tide Turners Challenge is one of the challenges in the new World Organisation of the Scout Movement Earth Tribe program. To find out more about Tide Turners Challenge and Earth Tribe, join an online “Tribeinar” during January.
