ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Managing Director: Scenic World
“Low Carbon Living helped us identify ways to minimise our carbon footprint so we can make changes one step at a time.
Over the past 12 months we have installed a natural composting system and solar panels which will offset 120 tonnes of CO2 per annum.”
Restaurateur: Leura Garage
“Great care has been taken at Leura Garage to minimise our carbon footprint.
The installation of a 10 kw solar panel system lowered the electricity bill for Leura Garage by $6,500 annually. Heating initiatives save us $7,000 in gas costs.”
Owner/Manager: Lyttleton Stores
“Local sourcing of food and processing of waste are essential to reducing our carbon load.
The wide range of produce sold at the Lyttleton Stores Co-operative is grown and produced in Australia, preferably in NSW, and ideally from the Blue Mountains.”
