Waste Management

It really isn't rocket science taking responsibility for your own waste. Just start by making a list of everything in your life - car, home, office - and schedule time for maintenance, repairs, upgrades and conversions. Waste not Want not my grandmother always said - see how you can minimise your waste and reuse somewhere else.

Pollution Management

Be dilligent and minimise your waste through our Water Ways.
Instead of flushing old food scraps, bury in your compost heap.
Clean your Air Conditioning units each month to minimise air pollution inside. Only use when really truly needed.
Look at the air pollution emitted from you car, research more eco friendly options.

Stormwater Management

Keep your Footpath and Gutters Free of Litter
Instead of hosing of outdoor areas into gutter or drain try sweeping.
Keep all drains clear of litter - create a monthly schedule to maintain.
Recycle the swept rubbish like leaves and twigs etc into garden or general rubbish into the recyclable bin
Ensure all yards, parking areas and rooves have drainage and systems in place to direct the rain into the stormwater system and not the sewer.
All waste and material to be disposed of or stored in covered area.

Energy Management

Install Air Conditioning Thermostats and check and maintain regularly
Switch Off Stand By Power at the end of every day
Use Energy Efficient Products - whitegoods, sound and vision equipment
Install Insulation in the Roof

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.
