Keeping it clean CLEAN living without chemicals and pollutants is a way of life for local ENJO representative Rachel Battaglene and her family. Rachel is just one of hundreds of local residents and business owners who will volunteer their time this Sunday at Clean Up Australia Day locations around Hervey Bay and the Fraser Coast. After losing her mother to lung disease, Rachel found herself more motivated than ever to rid her home of the toxic chemicals she believed contributed to her mother’s illness. “I’m always talking to people about the hidden dangers of household chemicals on our health and on the health of our marine life,” she told the Indy. “Pollution like plastic bottles and toxic waste is no different. “What better way to make a difference than to get out there on Sunday and help clean up our local environment?” Seven years ago, Rachel joined the ENJO team and she’s never looked back since. “I love that Hervey Bay is such an environmentally friendly town and to help keep it beautiful, I wanted to get involved in a more community based program, so I’ve registered to take part in a cleanup at Dayman Park, Urangan,” she said. “Along with my band of VIP customers, friends and family we will endeavour to keep Australia and the Bay beautiful on this special day.” Last year’s Clean Up Australia Day saw almost 16,000 tonnes of rubbish collected around the nation, thanks to the efforts of local volunteers like Rachel. Since the event fi rst began in 1990, Australians have donated more than 27.2 million hours to the cause and have removed an estimated 288,650 tonnes of rubbish from 145,754 sites across the country.

After sailing his yacht around the world in 1987, Ian found himself shocked and disgusted at the level of fl oating debris and pollution clogging up our oceans. After returning to Sydney, Ian organised a community event with the support of a committee of friends, including Clean Up cofounder Kim McKay. That event was called Clean Up Sydney Harbour Day. More than 40,000 Sydneysiders donated their time and energy to clean up the harbour. Following the huge success of Clean Up Sydney Harbour Day, Clean Up Australia Day was born the very next year. Almost 300,000 volunteers turned out on the fi rst Clean Up Australia Day in 1990 and that involvement has steadily increased ever since. In the past 25 years, Australians have devoted more than 27.2 million hours towards the environment through Clean Up Australia Day and collected over 288,650 tonnes of rubbish. After gaining the support of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Clean Up the World was launched in 1993. In its inaugural year, Clean Up the World involved approximately 30 million people in 80 countries. An estimated 40 million people from 130 countries take part in the event every year.
