War on Waste
On Saturday 11th May, several RCG members were fortunate to attend a Forum on Waste run by the Mornington Peninsula Shire. The keynote speaker was Craig Reucassel who is continuing his War on Waste. Many issues were discussed and initiatives by the shire were announced.
On a local level the message is Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. There were also a number of community groups with stalls promoting their programs and products which echoed this message..
Some hints for RCG members are: reduce the amount of plastic you use if possible, feed the worms with your organic waste, continue to grow your own vegies and carry your own water bottle and coffee mug. These small things add up, especially if you can convert family and friends.
