Save the date for World Cleanup Day: Saturday 15 September 2018 – Be part of the biggest civic action in human history!
In recent years, illegal dumping has become common in our community and has claimed many public spaces. These dump-sites are not only an eyesore but pose a health hazard to people in the vicinity. A community’s environment is meant to encourage growth and benefit the well-being of its people. The World Cleanup Day may just be the start of our community’s journey to being a dump free zone.
World Cleanup Day is a first-of-its-kind initiative founded by Let’s Do It! World. Let’s Do it! World is a global civic movement aimed at connecting and empowering people and organisations around the world to make the planet waste free. Their goal is to unite against illegal waste, organising a one-day global cleanup on the 15th of September 2018. The cleanup brings together 150 countries for one cause – a clean world.
However, Let’s Do It! World is not only about cleaning up waste. Like Love Where You Live, they aim to raise awareness and implement true change to achieve a clean and healthy planet! Love Where You Live would like Laudium to join the millions of volunteers as we unite to clean the world in a single day!
The community belongs to all of us and although there are those who harm our environment, there are hundreds more who love and respect it. Our environment is in need of care and we are the only ones that can help heal it. Challenge yourself to take a stand against illegal dumping in our area and help send out a clear message that it won’t be tolerated any longer.
Date: Saturday, 15 September 2018. Time: 9am – 11am.
