Earth Carers in Action
Congratulations to Glen and Lindsay who were recently married in Mosman Park. It was a beautiful wedding which was not only thoughtful and meaningful but sustainable and low waste too! Food and beverages were locally sourced, minimal (if any) packaging, recycled and repurposed decorations and even a compost bin for scraps. We wish them all the best for their new life together.

which don't include toys! Last year we made fabric wallets for our children with gift vouchers that could be used throughout the year such as a ferry ride, bikeride for an icecream, extra long story reading and a massage.
