iPromise is a sustainability campaign initiated by Tradies in 2011, which is designed to help protect our environment. The aim of the program is to encourage community awareness of sustainability and the impact of our individual actions.
Club Central is excited to be working with ANSTO and other community partners on the ‘ANSTO Plastics Project’. Club Central is already well underway reducing the use of non recyclable plastics and has committed to the use of biodegradable and environmentally friendly bags for raffles and other club events.
Club Central has also stopped using latex balloons at outdoor events to prevent further harm to our wildlife and environment. Club Central’s goal is to be known as an industry leader in ethical and sustainable practices.
Already the club has spent $323,000 on energy efficient LED lighting and installed a 100kw solar energy system, complementing our extensive cardboard, glass and oil recycling programs.
Ocean Ambassadors Australia is part of the global Ocean Ambassadors team. Our volunteers are all local people, dedicated to reducing marine debris through actively collecting plastics litter and educating the community about how we can reduce our impact on the environment. We meet at 5.30pm every Sunday afternoon at North Cronulla to collect plastic litter from the beach. Everyone is welcome to join us!
|The Inspiring Australia strategy aims to deliver a more scientifically engaged Australia where Australians are inspired by and value scientific endeavour, critically engage with scientific issues and where young Australians are encouraged to pursue scientific studies and careers.|
