Looking for a different kind of team bonding exercise? Registrations for the 2012 Business Clean Up Day are now open.
Some 337 businesses looking to improve their environmental impact took part in the 2011 Business Clean Up Day, helping remove over 16,500 tonnes of rubbish across the country. Now, registrations are open for the 2012 event, and organisers hope an even greater number of businesses will join in the movement and become more environmentally responsible.
“We’re urging all Australians businesses to work together to clean up the environment or introduce more environmentally friendly policies in their own work environment,” Clean Up Australia chairman and founder Ian Kiernan said.
“Pull together as a team and help clean up your local park, waterways, beaches or even your own workplace. It’s a great team building experience to work together and see the positive results that Business Clean Up Day can achieve.”
This year’s event sees the introduction of a new initiative, the Clean Up Australia Business Circle, which delivers tips and tricks for making the most out of your Clean Up Day, information on greening your office, opportunities to network with other businesses and online access to materials for Business Clean Up.
“Exclusively for our members, the new Clean Up Australia Business Circle will provide the opportunity for businesses to share their environmental tips and successes with each other. Business can also do their bit for the environment by making a donation to Clean Up Australia, and helping us continue our work” Kiernan added.
