The five Rs are our new religion - ooh that would make it six! :-)
Seriously - Recycle, Repair, Reuse, Renew and Reduce

These five little words can save you money, save energy and save resources.

If you are into money, you have a savings plan and are careful with you spending.
Sit down and look at your life and see where you can apply the RRRRRs and create your own Life Savings plan.

Here are some ideas to get you started!

Car use – reduce your usage and increase passengers
Domestic Travel – reduce flights to four times per annum
Dual Toilet Flushers
Eat what you buy, don’t waste it!
Energy – use a renewable source
Garden – rainwater or grey water tanks
Go organic, when shopping and gardening
Grow your own
House – have number of rooms to match number of people
New Clothing – reduce purchase to once a month
Overseas Travel – reduce to once every 2 years
Plant Australian natives and Succulent desert plants to save water
Reduce animal products in your diet
Shop locally
Eat slow foods
Temperature – reduce cooling and heating number of rooms and time
Water Efficient Shower Heads
Whitegoods – decrease number; reduce usage and share with others

The Earth Mission

Our Mission is to:
Live a simpler life.
Live as part of the earth, part of the tides, the natural rhythms, the planets and the elements.
Align the values of the earth with family, community, work and mine.
Live with less.
Make better use of our resources.
Make better use of our time.

“A robin eats worms in the spring, because it needs the protein to lay eggs and raise chicks.
A robin eats fruit in the summer, because food is abundant and carbohydrates are lightweight energy.
And a robin eats seeds and nuts in the fall, to store fats for the long flight south.
In the same way, it is important for people to vary their diet throughout the year to remain healthy.
Eating locally does that.
It keeps you in touch with the cycle of nature wherever you live."

In our business world, the impact of our operations and actions on our networks, the community and the environment is something we take very seriously.
Feedback from clients, suppliers, associates, alliance partners, employees, shareholders, the community and the environment identifies the voids – the unfulfilled need and this provides the greatest opportunities for change and improvement.
Our quest is never ending as we collect, analyse, research, educate and share our information and ideas as individuals and as a company in the journey of our commitment to manage the impact of our business on the health and safety of our employees, contractors and members of the communities in which we operate and on the environment.

Please join us in this commitment by observing our Push The Earth policy when you do business with us.

Together we can make a difference.
