Innovation the key for Green Team

2018 has been an exciting year for the Green Team as we continue to push forward with initiatives.
We have now partnered with the South Australian Governments, ‘Energy Partners Program’ and you will start to see information and publications on ways to help us reduce our energy usage. We have also purchased a Home Energy Audit Kit, which will allow every person we support to be able to measure their energy hotspots and target specific reductions based on their personal use and homes. More info on the energy audits to come.

This year, CLO has also partnered with the NRM Levy and Be Smart inc to bring an exciting initiative to our Victor Harbor office; the ‘Living Smart; course. Shannan is a trained facilitator of the Living Smart course and with the help of support worker  and Green Team member, Sharon Dredge, is running a free 5 week course about environmental sustainability. Over the 5 weeks, course participants will learn how to save money and help protect the planet, in a fun and interactive atmosphere. We have just completed week 3 and look forward to the next 2 weeks. So far we have learned about many topics and made many take home items.
Look out for the ‘2018 Upcycle Competition’ information in the next few months!
