Living Sustainably

In an effort to reduce our impact on the environment, Council produced the following brochure to promote the benefits of living more sustainably.

Your Sustainable Home Brochure(PDF, 1MB)

The foldout booklet is loaded with information, ideas and useful links on how householders can reduce their impact on the natural environment. This guide will provide you with useful information to assist you in taking the first steps to make your home more sustainable. With a comparison of how various families live, readers can readily see how the cost of living can be reduced through behavioural change and appliance choice.

With lower running costs, natural light and a healthy living environment, a sustainable home is a pleasure to live in. Living sustainably also minimises our impact on the natural environment.

Available in hard copy, the brochure is a useful resource for school projects and also provides links to more comprehensive resources.
