They provide our newest Australians with that vital first step they need to achieve their dreams. Long St has recently expanded into off-site catering, which directly contributes to their hospitality training program.

Six Classes

 

Six Classes, The Green Science Policy Institute

Most of the products we use every day contain chemicals of concern that may be harming our health and can be grouped into "Six Classes", each containing similar chemicals. By using the Six Classes approach, it allows for better understanding of these chemicals, their functions, where they are used, and how they can be avoided.

It can prevent a vicious cycle whereby a phased out harmful chemical is replaced with a closely related chemical which may cause similar harm.

Sustainable Table

 

Sustainable Table

In coming decades the world faces the risk of major regional food crises leading to conflicts and mass refugee movements. This is driven primarily by emerging scarcities of all the primary resources required to produce food and a global failure to reinvest in it.

eWater Systems encourages all to play their part to create a more sustainable future for our food.

Plastic Bag Free Victoria

 

Plastic Bag Free Victoria

This fantastic grass roots campaign aims to reduce and ultimately eliminate the use of wasteful plastic bags in Victoria, by lobbying Government and raising awareness among everyday citizens. We at eWater fully support this aim. By taking reusable bags to the supermarket, refusing plastic bags or using a box,  Victorians can save over a billion plastic bags each year.

War On Waste

 

ABC's War On Waste

The four-part documentary series War on Waste, takes a critical look at household, retail and farming waste in Australia and asks, what is it about our consumer culture that has led us to become among the most wasteful nations on Earth?

They go behind the ‘greenwash’ and discover the truth about where our waste actually ends up, and learn what we can do to reduce the staggering volumes we produce.

When Balloons Fly

 

When Balloons Fly Campaign

More than 80% of baby seabirds on Lord Howe Island have ingested rubbish, with balloons and their attachments one of the most identifiable items.

These items are dangerously hazardous to these birds and are ended up in waterways all around Australia.

By replacing balloons with other kinds of outdoor activities, we can play our part in protecting our precious wildlife.
