We’re Supporting Clean Up Australia’s Great Spring Clean

It’s Time For Clean Up Australia’s Great Spring Clean. 

At Snap Send Solve, we’re all about keeping our shared spaces safe, clean, and great to be in. That’s why we’re supporting Clean Up Australia’s Great Spring Clean event happening this September!

Clean Up Australia is urging everyone to take action and address our environmental challenges before summer hits. Our environment is facing immense pressure with Australians generating 2.5 million tonnes of plastic waste yearly. 

A huge 84% of this plastic waste goes to landfills, while 130,000 tonnes leak into our marine environment.

Let’s rally together to put the “great” in the great outdoors and tidy our local environments, just as we would spring clean our homes.

Register your clean up event at register.cleanup.org.au/greatspringclean to be part of this year’s Great Spring Clean.

Registration is free, with participants receiving Clean Up kits with gloves, bags, and resources included. Businesses are welcome to participate by covering a small fee to cover kit costs.
