The ACT-ABC-Hub has helped plant 231.0 native trees in Australian forests by supporting Greenfleet, one of Australia’s most trusted environmental charities.
As we join the global community to celebrate the International Day of Forests on March 21, we are proud of our commitment to reduce our impact on climate change by offsetting our emissions with Greenfleet’s native forests.
Forests and trees sustain and protect us in invaluable ways. They provide the clean air that we breathe, and the water that we drink. They host and safeguard the planet’s biodiversity and act as our natural defence against climate change.
Join the Hub and thousands of other individuals and organisations who take real climate action with Greenfleet and celebrate the International Day of Forests by donating to our environmental partner, Greenfleet.
You need to take the lids off bottles and jars before you put them in the recycling bin. Bottles and jars that still have their lids on can cause problems at the ACT recycling facility. So, when you’ve finished with your bottles and jars, take the lids off – and then put the lot (bottles, jars, lids) in your recycling bin.
There are lots of other types of recyclable materials that you might not know about and might be incorrectly throwing in the garbage bin. For example, rigid plastic take away food containers and toothpaste tubes can all be recycled. Did you know toothpaste tubes and other semi-rigid plastics like sun cream tubes often become pencil cases after recycling!
You can check what can and can’t be recycled on the TAMS website A-Z Waste and Recycling Guide.
ACT-ABC-Hub and Greenfleet are working together to protect our climate and restore Australian native forests. To date, Greenfleet has planted enough trees to offset 51.0 tonnes of CO2-e on behalf of ACT-ABC-Hub.
In his TED talk “What the people of the Amazon know that you don’t“, ethno-botanist Mark Plotkin recounts some ancient wisdom from Suriname – “the rainforest holds answers to questions that we are yet to ask.”
