13 Mar Earthworks Certificate Presentation – Carrington Centre, Campsie
On the 3rd of March 2009 I was honoured to represent our Mayor, and State Member for Lakemba, Cr Robert Furolo at the Earthworks Certificate Presentation at Carrington Centre, Campsie.
The graduates of this course, are amongst 120 people who have now completed the course.
Earthworks program it’s not just about putting shopping in reusable bags, rather than plastic. It’s also about composting, saving water and energy.
Reusing products or goods, recycling and of course – avoiding waste in the first place.
One of the best things about the Earthworks program is learning some of the natural cleaning tips – which aren’t costly. They are simple and most often readily available in your cupboard.
Plus they are much better for the environment than chemical products – which we don’t even know what half of them are.
I hope the graduates of this course continue to use and apply the things they have learnt through the course.
But, also to educate others on how they can save the environment and money by just changing a few of their daily habits.
I also encourage all residents to take part in some of our other environmental and waste initiatives and programs including, our tree planting days and recycling tours.
