Solar energy is amazing. On a sunny day like this the panels on our roof generate enough energy to power 15 hundred watt bulbs for 10 hours! We are so proud to be moving towards being 100% green and hope that this new found popularity that the green movement has is here to stay.
So many companies now gush about how ‘green’ they are that it seems like the latest trend. Whatever the reason, we need to keep this happening. We need to keep asking questions and pressuring the people we buy from to stay on the path towards sustainability.
Last month’s sustainable living festival was absolutely inspiring with everything you need to know about respecting this humble little planet we live on from eating for your health and the health of the environment to mindful travel ideas. We can’t wait for next year!
For more infomation on what you can do to help out check out www.sustainability.vic.gov.au and just keep on googling – there is tonnes of info out there to help you!

Matt trekked out to Frankston last week to shoot the developing transport hub that’s popping up in the Frankston City Centre.

Frankston’s redevelopment has long been in the works, so we’re super keen to see it grow! Here are some of pics of the ‘Heart of Frankston’ in progress.]]>
