Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : November 19th 2008
18 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, November 20, 2008 MB ONE DEGREE OF CHANGE -- IT'S ABOUT EVERY ONE OF US Local heroes Leading lights It's a fact Not all hot air in firm's new carbon-neutral products Help Elgas take action on climate change by switching to its newly- launched Swap'n'Go Green. Swap'n'Go Green is a product initiative that empowers Australian consumers who want to make an environmentally- conscious decision. The makers claim the LPG in Swap'n'Go Green is 100 per cent carbon-neutral. When you choose Swap'n'Go Green, Elgas offsets the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the production, transport and use of the LPG by purchasing carbon offsets that are certified by the Federal Government. The bottles are also made from recyclable materials. The Swap'n'Go Green bottle design has been tested throughout Europe prior to its arrival in Australia. With a new colour scheme, the bottles are lighter than typical steel cylinders Combined with the ergonomically-designed twin handle grips, the bottles much easier to lift and carry. Swap'n'Go Green's design and safety technology includes: Improved safety with a valve Rust-free exterior Strong composite reinforced construction with steel inner liner. Swap'n'Go Green is available through selected BP outlets. Going with the flow Newington manufacturer, Dux, was a finalist in two categories of the 2008 GreenPlumbers Awards for its Subzero heat pump hot water sys- tem. The company was a finalist in the Sustainability Victoria Energy Efficient Product of the Year and the Aust- ralian Plumbing Industry Magazine Product of the Year categories. Dux's Subzero heat pump hot water system is a domestic water heater which utilises solar energy. It has reduced traditional hot water energy consumption by up to 70 per cent. In addition to operating at a ''neigh- bour friendly'' noise level of 51 decibels, the Subzero protection allows the unit to heat water, even when the temperature outside drops below zero. ''During research and development of this product, reducing greenhouse gas emission and carbon footprint was a major focus and we are proud to say that we have achieved this,'' Dux spokesman Howard Lloyd said. The GreenPlumbers Awards are in their seventh year. Green schools: Kids taught sustainable and healthy living Students and staff from Homebush West Public School recently completed the 250th project of the Green Schools Connect program. The program is a partnership between Conservation Volunteers Australia and the Vodafone Australian Foundation. It teaches young people about the importance of conserving the environment. The students built a series of no-dig vegetable gardens which require no soil excavation within school grounds. Ten News weatherman Tim Bailey was on hand to help celebrate. He carried out a series of live crosses during the News at Five bulletin. The gardens aim to engage children in sustainable practices, as well as encourage healthy eating. Conservation Volunteers Australia spokesman Sam Robinson said the program aimed to promote understanding and create experience associated with the environment. ''Green Schools Connect aims to inspire young people who care to act, to do so by involving them in the creation of outdoor classrooms,'' Mr Robinson said. Since 2005, the Vodafone Australia Foundations and Conservation Volunteers Australia have mobilised thousands of students and volunteers to deliver successful environmental projects, from development of a native bush foods garden to monitoring the frog population in a school yard. Governments urged to zap electronic waste problems INDUSTRY, local government and environment groups have called on federal and state govern- ments to take urgent action to divert electronic waste from landfill. The move comes from the Total Environment Centre, the Australian Information Industry Associ- ation, Product Stewardship Australia and the NSW Local Government Association. They are urging ministers to fast-track regulation for end-of-life televisions and computers. ''Local governments have been shouldering an unfair share of the burden on electronic waste,'' a Local Government Association spokesman said. ''Ironically, the manufacturers of these products are seeking a fair, national extended producer respons- ibility system.''
