Get your hands dirty for a cleaner Gold Coast

It’s the biggest clean up in the country. And you’re invited to lend a hand. Gold Coast has more than 70 registered sites for Clean Up Australia Day this year from Jacob’s Well and Oxenford down to the border, up to Advancetown and even offshore on South Stradbroke Island.

Eleven year old Imogen Potts has become the ambassador for Clean Up Australia Day on the Gold Coast this year.

A passionate young Gold Coaster, she has been spreading the word for acleaner, healthier environment for years already and has been participating in clean ups all over the Gold Coast for almost 10 years.

“A cleaner Gold Coast means cleaner oceans which then again means better life for all everyone,” Imogen says.

”I encourage everyone to stop using single use plastic. It is easy – take your own bag, your own water bottle, a reusable coffee cup and use your common sense,” she said.

Every action makes a massive impact to the landscape. If you can only do one thing, join us for Clean Up Australia Day and get your hands dirty for a cleaner Gold Coast.
