Many hands make light work

If you've ever wondered how you can make a real difference to your community - there's never been an easier way than signing up to help clean up the environment this Sunday (March 4). Clean Up Australia Day, Australia's biggest community participation event, attracted more than 565,000 volunteers in 2011 who collected a whopping 16,545 tonnes of rubbish and junk across Australia. We live in a beautiful country and if we don't look after it we will lose our most prized possession - the environment. Let's go one better this year - grab a bunch of mates and get stuck in. To register your own Clean Up site or volunteer at one of the thousands of registered sites register online at http://www.cleanupaustraliaday.org.au/register. Let's do this!
