World Environment Day (5 June 2020) is a reminder of how important it is for each and every one of us to defend our local environment and take up the fight against climate change. This World Environment Day, I thank the many inner west environmental activists and groups who are fighting to protect our local inner west environment. The Mudcrabs regularly host clean up events along the Cooks River. Last month alone, they pulled 20 bags of plastic litter from the river. Inner West Council Bushcare Group helps to build and protect habitat for native wildlife. Volunteers host working bees at local parks around the inner west, getting their hands dirty planting native flora. Young people in my electorate care deeply about their local environment, from climate strikers to school groups formed to protect whales and koalas. And organisations like Reverse Garbage, Boomerang Bags Inner West and The Bower work tirelessly to divert resources from landfill. Thank you to all the passionate inner west residents who continue to fight for real action on our environment. I stand with you. Happy World Environment Day.
