Love Living Sustainably
“Sustainability” means different
things to different people.
What does it mean to you – at home,
work and in your community?
Share your practical actions and
tell us how they make a difference.
This activity will provide SLiK with ideas for future projects and inspire others to try out ideas they hadn’t thought about.
One simple example: Riding a bike
- Saves us $ in fuel costs
- Reduces our carbon emissions
- Increases our health and fitness
- We feel more relaxed and sleep better
- We meet more people out on our bikes
- We get to know our neighbourhood better
- We are being an example to others
- We don’t buy as much at the grocery store because we have to pedal it home
What do you do?
Is it reducing waste, recycling, growing, producing food or just doing things differently
Consider the actions you currently take to live sustainably and
What benefits and impacts result from taking these actions

Prizes will be awarded at Love Living Locally at 1.45pm, Sunday the 23rd March for:

Reduce your Power Bills
Kingboroughs Greenways and Greenwares project
16 households became Energy Champions for this project - they found that it was far better to create savings through behavour changes before considering the installation of green wares such as phtovoltaic panels.
SLiK did some research on the best type of PV systems for Tasmanian conditions. You can find out research document on the Energy Efficiency page.
