This Christmas give your loved ones a gift which gives back to our planet. Your support will help to reduce global warming and enable local community groups to reduce their electricity bills.
The COREM carbon offset gift cards are tax deductible and are part of an online crowd-funding campaign.
The crowd-funding aims to raise the remaining $7,500 needed to install solar at the Brunswick Valley Historical Society’s Mullumbimby Museum and at the Federal Hall.
Donations will not only contribute to the installation of the solar panels, but savings on electricity bills, which are then returned to COREM’s Revolving Community Energy Fund for new solar projects.
Through the community’s generosity in 2016 more than $30,000 has been raised through donations, events and grants to fund COREM’s first three community-owned solar projects in the greater Mullumbimby area.
By the end of this month a combined total of 27 kW of solar will be on the Drill Hall Theatre, Mullum Showgrounds and the Brunswick Valley Volunteer Rescue Association.
‘We have been really heartened by the support from our community and these projects demonstrate we can flick fossil fuels and run Mullum by the sun’, says COREM vice president Dave Rawlins.
The COREM carbon offset cards are available at the Mullumbimby Museum and The Mullumbimby Bookshop. Alternatively donate online via corem.org.au and receive your cards by post.
Or COREM can post them directly to your friends and family.
