Carlton real estate residents may have noticed the new and improved Kogarah City Council website, which features a range of information on the area's environmental sustainability.
Do your bit to keep your neighbourhood as clean and green as possible by following this advice.
Avoid bottled water
Cut down on waste and damage to the planet by reducing the amount of water bottles you buy and dispose of. Some chemicals found in the plastic of many bottles can be harmful to humans, so do yourself and the environment a favour by swapping your plastic bottles to stainless steel ones that will last a lifetime.
Buy local, seasonal produce
Support local growers and producers in your area by buying as much of your grocery items from them as possible. Head to local farmer's markets for fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs and baked goods for a boost to your local economy. Buying locally also means you'll reduce fuel emissions from transporting goods from other places so everybody wins.
Carlton Primary School hosts a farmer's market on the third Saturday of every month, so mark it in your diaries now.
