Environmental understanding…exciting


I am delighted to read such a comprehensive feature on this year’s important environmental initiative in last week’s “Independent” (16/1/19).

And how exciting it is to hear the extent of environmental understanding coming from Shalise Leesfield, a 12 year old girl. Some of our passionate environmental advocates are really very young.

The article mentioned a range of innovative ideas that would be included as topics our students would explore such as both waste management and water management.

However of absolute importance I believe is the topic of waste minimisation. Refilling your reusable drink bottle with tap water again and again and again is an example of waste minimisation. Why not put out your recyclables bin when it is nearly full rather than every week? It’s your choice.

 I believe 2019 will be the year when we vote and act towards a sustainable world for our children.

Now you’re here …

… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.

If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it. For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
