Start your journey to a greener everyday

Are you inspired by the impact of our four greener living case study homes? Join the Sustainable Everyday Living program made up of challenges for you and your household. Together, we can realise the power of the individual, where even the smallest actions can begin great change.

The Sustainable Everyday Living program aims to support 50,000 Australians in making more sustainable choices. By doing this, we aim to save 15,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions, equivalent to offsetting the CO2 emissions from 2700 homes’ energy use for one year.
