As part of an annual tradition to help save Mother Earth, the Triskelion International of Victoria Australia Inc. (TIVAI) participated in the Clean Up Australia 2020 community activity at The Newport Park, The Gatehouse and the surrounding riverbanks of Warmies Fishing site last 01 March 2020.  

This initiative was organised and led by Chairman Louie Sarte and spearheaded by Vice-Chairman Emerson Domingo.

TIVAI members and their families together with other likeminded community volunteers picked up rubbish in the area and sorted them out accordingly before dumping them in the bins provided by the council.

A big shout out to Hobson’s Bay City Council, Mr. Shaun Young – Waste and Litter Community officer for partnering with us and making all this happen.

It was a fabulous day in Melbourne and after the clean up had been completed, the Triskelion family and friends had an enjoyable sausage sizzle and “Filo” brunch at the park to celebrate another successful contribution to “Clean up Australia” day.

How Clean Up Day started

What was started thirty years ago by an “average Australian bloke” who had a simple idea to make a difference in his own backyard has now become the nation’s largest community-based environmental event.

It is hard to believe that this initiative began as the inspiration of one man, Ian Kiernan. An avid sailor, Ian was shocked and disgusted by the pollution and rubbish that he continually encountered in the oceans of the world.

Taking matters into his own hands, Ian organised a community event with the support of a committee of friends, including co-founder Kim McKay AO.

This simple idea ignited enthusiasm and desire among the local community to get involved and make a difference. And surely if a capital city could be mobilised into action, then so could the whole nation!

And so it was that Clean Up Australia Day was born in 1990. Clean up Australia inspires and empowers communities to clean up, fix up and conserve our environment.

TIVAI thanked everyone who participated and volunteered for this wonderful cause and hope to see all again next year.

TIVAI has previously joined a national tree planting event as part of its advocacy to help promote a sustainable environment.
