NEW SUSTAINABLE LIVING GUIDE LAUNCHED TO CELEBRATE WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY


The City of Greater Bendigo has launched a new online sustainable living guide to celebrate World Environment Day on Sunday June 5.
World Environment Day is the annual United Nations event to promote worldwide awareness of environmental issues and encourages us all to take action.
City of Greater Bendigo Mayor Cr Rod Fyffe said he encouraged all residents to log onto www.bendigo.vic.gov.au  to access the new comprehensive guide on how to live a more sustainable life.
“The guide has been designed to help residents take action to live more sustainably at home and in the community and is packed with ideas, tips and inspiration.
“It demonstrates that small, easy changes can have positive impacts on the environment and your health and wellbeing as well as saving you some money.
“The new guide has been produced in conjunction with the Natural Strategies Group, a small organization that develops and assists organizations with online environmental information.
“It’s a wonderful up to date resource full of simple actions we can all take to help reduce our impact on the planet and includes images and links to related resources,” said Cr Fyffe.
Topics covered in the guide included transport, house, food, products, waste, community, garden and work.
Each topic has a range of specific actions, which includes information about the issues being addressed and how the suggested action helps create a more sustainable future for us all.  
“This new initiative is a great resource for our community and builds on other sustainability initiatives being undertaken by City of Greater Bendigo and other community organizations” said Cr Fyffe.
