Members of the Murwillumbah Community Garden - one of the 25 groups and individuals nominated for Council's 2023 Tweed Sustainability Awards - recently hosted their Earth Bag Workshop.
An inspiring range of sustainable initiatives have been nominated for the 2023 Tweed Sustainability Awards.
Council’s Program Leader Sustainability Debbie Firestone said the number and quality of this year’s nominations is impressive.
“We received 25 nominations for the awards this year, which doubles the nominations received in 2021,” Ms Firestone said.
“I am thrilled there are so many local sustainability stars on display. Each nominee should be incredibly proud of their story, the actions they’ve taken to reduce their environmental footprint and how they’re enabling others to do so.
“All initiatives nominated for this year’s awards demonstrate leading sustainability practices that reduce our impact on the Tweed’s natural environment.
“These include creating new opportunities for people to be environmentally friendly, reducing waste sent to landfill, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and supporting our local wildlife.”
A wide range of sustainable initiatives have been nominated for the 2023 awards, including:
