Have you done all you can to power and heat your house with solar? Have you done all you can to travel and receive supplies by electric vehicle or bicycle or wind power? Have you done all you can to minimise air travel? Do you make the effort to keep a kitchen garden and buy food and products produced and transported with renewable energy and materials? Can you possibly work with renewables, recycle products, and minimise waste?

Are you making these positive changes step by step?

Sapoty Brook, Mullumbimby
