Today was Clean Up Australia day at our local beautiful mountain, Mount Gravatt. So we helped and volunteered to clean up rubbish there. In the two hours we filled 2 sacks of recycling and 1 sack of general rubbish. And then with the several people within the group there was a large amount of rubbish collected at the end – shockingly amazing! I can’t believe how some people can feel it’s ok to throw rubbish away, especially in a fine piece of nature, it’s very dis-heartening. On the other hand, it’s encouraging to know there are other people who also feel passionately about maintaining Australia’s beauty. Thanks to Mount Gravatt Environment Group for organising this.
I thought it would be nice to illustrate the day using an Aussie themed sign post, showing a koala (as they are present at Mount Gravatt!!) thanking us for the work we did, and all the bags full of rubbish at the bottom of the tree!
