Sustainability Blog #1

I’m writing this post from my desk at Merici on a pleasant mid-February morning. The sun is shining, and a cool breeze drifts into the office from the window on my left. It’s a stark contrast to the sweltering conditions that gripped most of Australia’s east coast from Friday until Sunday.

Merici Weekly Green Tip

Here is our green tip for the week:

Did you know…

You can recycle soft plastics at Coles
Supermarket in Canberra??

Coles has partnered with REDcycle to collect plastic that can’t be recycled at home.

You can take in your soft plastic, such as plastic bags, plastic food wrapping, snap lock bags, which is used to create furniture for schools, preschools and community groups.
