Earth Carers in Action
Gabrielle and Nabilla have gone on maternity leave and we wish them both well over the next exciting and exhausting months. We've welcomed Libby Eustance to the team full time to hold the fort in their absence. Libby has been an Earth Carer since 2003(!) and was a Councillor at Mosman Park for nearly 7 years.
Amy and Libby are just finishing the latest Earth Carers Schools course with students from Perth Modern School - here they are making their own deodorant. Do you know any local High School kids who would enjoy learning about rubbish, composting,making plastic-free alternatives and how waste is processed? Get in touch for details
We are so proud
of Rebecca - she's been awarded a prestigious Churchill Fellowship to investigate innovative ways to tackle plastic pollution around the world. She'll be off on her travels in February and we are looking forward to hearing what she learns!
Our friend Justin has set up the Responsible Cafes initiative and our neighbouring councils of Stirling and Fremantle are both supporters. Cafes offer a discount if you take your reusable cup - encourage your local to join in! Go to their website to find out which cafes have joined (there are lots including many for your next visit to Margaret River!)
