Coles Liquor raised $125,000 in Clean Up Australia Day campaign

Coles Liquor’ ‘Drop of Good’ campaign has raised more than $125,000 for environmental group Clean Up Australia to clean and conserve the environment.

Aussies have volunteered to clean up their local parks, beaches, rivers and other outdoor places in their local community. 

Last weekend, Liquorland, First Choice and First Choice Liquor Market stores donated 25 cents from transactions to Clean Up Australia every day. The proceeds funded Clean Up Kits, which include biodegradable rubbish and recycling bags, gloves and a high-vis vest.

“We were delighted to see our team members get involved too and band together to make a difference in their own communities by taking part in Clean Up Australia Day and picking up litter in their local area,” said Coles Liquor general manager operations Steve Hugginson.

Since June 2018, Coles Group has raised more than $590,000 for Clean Up Australia via the sale of reusable bags which were designed by Aussie students.

“We know our waste problems won’t be solved in one day, which is why thousands of Aussies make every day a Clean Up Day by revisiting their favourite locations to keep them clean throughout the year,” Clean Up Australia chairman Pip Kiernan said.
