Help us spread the word far and wide about this showcase of sustainability & environmentally friendly stuff you can access up here in the Hills. Then come and join the fun on the day. It will be AWESOME!
MiT are just one of the groups deeply involved in organising this Festival. It’s a local, minimal waste event based on a variety of environmental themes. Plenty of food vans with healthy food using GO2CUPS re-usable crockery & real cutlery (our own little War on Waste solution).
There will be talks, stalls, music, food & fun for everyone. Heaps of totally FREE activities for kids as well.
CONTACT US IF YOU HAVE A SUSTAINABLE, REGENERATIVE BUSINESS OR GROUP AND WOULD LIKE A STALL. NON-FOOD STALLS ARE FREE!!!!
MOTION BEING PUT TO SHIRE COUNCIL MEETING TUES 13, 6.30P
If you feel, like we do, that more needs to be done at a local level to increase the uptake of renewables … then you might be interested in this. A group of enthusiasts from MiT have come up with this proposal to form a working group of community members, Councillors and Shire staff to look at a model that has worked successfully in Victoria. As well as alternative sources of funding. Let us know if you’d like to support this initiative.
Woohooooo!! Our little DIVESTMENT success – nearly 2yrs liaising to get the wording changed in the Shire’s Investment policy with the help of the awesome team at 350.org But totally worth it. The photographer didn’t want us to include the signs, but we insisted. After all, lots of people don’t understand what “divestment” means. So we spelled it out. And the really good news: we have an amazing non-fossil fuel- funding bank right here in Mundaring. Mundaring Community Bank Branch has a board of VOLUNTEER Directors, has an ACTUAL OFFICE in town, provides local employment and gives a very significant percentage of its profits back to the community. How many other banks can claim that? Think about it … putting YOUR MONEY where it ALIGNS with YOUR VALUES.
