Sustainable South Perth
A group of local residents who initially came together as part of a community advisory panel. As individuals we have differing ideas about how to lighten our impact on the earth but we recognise this is a collective journey. We are really interested to find ways to make our own lives more sustainable and, after learning more about the process, to share our experiences as we progress.
