HARRY JENSEN CENTRE NEWS
WORLD CLEAN UP DAY September 15 is when local becomes global. In other words, what each individual does on that day and every day can contribute to a cleaner world.
At a local level, a Millers Point resident, Jaz Stephens, this week gave a talk to a few dozen residents at the Harry Jensen Centre about her fundraising and consciousness-raising trip around Australia.
Last year she drove herself around our continent in 80 days as an ambassador for World Clean Up Day!
Jaz drove 17,522 km in her Honda Civic, nick-named ‘BB’, accompanied every step of the way by her trusted mascot, Charlie Bear.
Dr Iain Clark from Rotary North Sydney, which gave its support for the venture, also came along to the informal chat over afternoon tea. They spoke about how we can all support World Clean Up Day on Saturday 15th September.
Jaz believes everyone can play a part in cleaning up our world.
So turn up at your local Clean Up activity on September 15. Every little bit of muscle and sweat counts!
