Fundraise for us

Whether you plan to run a marathon, cycle around Australia, hold a morning tea or ask for donations to mark a special event or person in your life, we’re hugely appreciative of your time and effort to help protect Australia’s unique plants, animals and landscapes.

If you’re unsure what kind of event or activity to hold, take a look through our Community Fundraising Guide (PDF | 1.2mb) for inspiration.

Recycle and fundraise for us

Join the ‘Protect Our Planet’ recycling appeal by donating your eligible bottles and cans.

We’ve partnered with TOMRA, Return and Earn in NSW and Containers for Change in QLD & WA to help ensure the survival of Australia’s native species for generations. Double your impact by donating to us and keeping bottles out of landfill.

To find out more visit the Protect our Planet website.

Want to collect containers from others and donate them? Download our poster to spread the word.

Founded in 1972, TOMRA provides reverse vending solutions for Clean Loop Recycling, collecting aluminium, plastic and glass beverage containers to be continually reused and recycled back into new bottles and cans. With approximately 80,000 reverse vending machines across the world, TOMRA captures over 40 billion used beverage containers every year towards a closed loop.

This reduces reliance on raw materials, and ensures fewer containers end up in our streets, oceans and landfills. TOMRA’s reverse vending machines, digital solutions and service make recycling easy for consumers to contribute to a more sustainable planet.
