Wingecarribee Shire Council has launched a sustainable living program in a new initiative for the Southern Highlands.
Council’s Manager Environment and Sustainability, Mr Barry Arthur, explained that the Sustainable Us program was developed in response to community feedback.
“Last year we undertook extensive community research to help develop the new Environment and Climate Change Strategy,” he said.
“Feedback suggested that our community perceive sustainable living as costly and struggle to know where to start their sustainable living journey.
“The video series features over 30 residents, businesses and producers who have all made simple swaps to live more sustainably.
“By sharing these stories, we hope to showcase what our community is doing and empower change.”
The first video in the series is available online now via Council’s website or YouTube page.
Further videos will be uploaded over the coming weeks.
