Coming up on Sunday, March 2nd is this year’s Cklean Up Australia Day, an event across Australia where, in 2013, hundreds of thousands of volunteers cleaned up trash at thousands of sites nationwide. Volunteers are essential to these kinds of massive efforts. Just one example of a single cleanup happening in the Wolgan Valley is this article from the Lithgow Mercury. The story details efforts led by the Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort and Spa to clean up the surrounding area. The resort claims on its website to be “Australia’s most environmentally responsible tourist destination.” This is just one example of how they back that up and, in doing so, get local volunteers involved.
