By looking for ways we can create a sharing economy within our community we reduce the need for resources being used to duplicate certain items or activities resulting in lower emissions. For example, connecting with your community and car-pooling to the shops or setting up a local street library for exchange of books are really great examples of where we can share resources and consume less materials.

Free Christmas Craft Workshop at Reviva Centre
On Saturday 3 December 2022 we ran an event for kids at Reviva, which is part of the Resource Recovery Centre in Moss Vale. We saw a range of kids attend from 3 years old to 10 years old.
Reviva houses all things discarded, from old sun lounges, power tools, to pre-loved kids’ toys. We used donated goods for the craft materials, so no new items were required.
The idea of the workshop was to show kids how easily old items can be turned into treasure and to kick start the festive season. The kids created little paper angel decorations, a Christmas tree from old books and special Christmas gift bags. We hope to run this workshop every year as the kids had such a great time.
Stay tuned for next year’s event.
Sustainable Us – Video series, Episode 12, to be released in-line with this month’s theme
This month we investigate how we can share things with our community members. Crop swap in Robertson, is one way communities can make the most of excess food. No food is wasted, and one person is not required to grow a multitude of fruits and vegetables.
