Recycling (for the birds) – a valuable resource gets a second lease of life

These large aviaries were being donated to Kaarakin Black Cockatoo Sanctuary by the McFarlane Family. MiT was asked to help out and David, Ken & Jarrah stepped up to assist with the dismantling. With the wet & wild weather that unfolded, it was a pretty soggy experience but after a few hours it was DONE. Flat packed!! Just hope the cockies appreciate their new homes. Well done boys!

Come on a FREE behind-the-scenes look with us to see how our local waste is managed at Red Hill. We’ll get to see areas not open to the general public to observe waste diversion programs, the Landfill Gas & Power Station site, the tip face and greenwaste recovery. Join us to see where “away” is, when stuff gets chucked. It’s a huge, growing problem that we all need to be aware of. Are you up for it?

Meeting the Wasteless Pantry Team @ Our May Event

The focus of our May event was: reducing waste and sharing our ideas in community (with soup and sewing thrown in for good measure). HUGE Thankyou to all the people who lent a hand, brought sewing machines and generally helped make the night hum along. That’s Transition in action.

It was great to meet the inspiring team from The Wasteless Pantry on Tuesday 19. What Amanda and Jeannie shared with us is definitely the type of local enterprise we want to support at MiT. Especially when they are going the extra distance and considering all sustainability aspects of their products. Reduced/no packaging, food miles (?), ethically produced etc, etc. You can read all about it – and get heaps of tips – on their fabulous website: http://www.wastelesspantry.com.au/  OPENING June 1st wasteless event sustainable
