Discover People’s Eco-Strengths in our Community

This series of short stories and videos come from everyday people in our community. Each story gently encourages you to discover people’s eco-strengths in our community and see what’s realistically possible to live an eco friendly lifestyle everyday.

I hope you feel inspired by the diversity of our community’s sustainability strengths. They are eco-champions for themselves, their family and their local community. But of course, there’s no right way to “be” sustainable, and these stories are brilliant at acknowledging our own heartfelt decisions.

Passion is their motivation for doing what they do – to make a difference, inspire others, and tell stories with kindness and positivity. Each story covers one aspect of the broad spectrum of sustainable living. The stories show us how one person can create a localised, positive impact on their everyday living that spreads as easily as butter on fresh bread on a hot day.

Through these stories, I encourage and support you to find and commit to your eco-strength – The one thing that sees you shine to become your own self-acclaimed eco-champion!
