Sustainable Living Festival

Growing bigger each year the Sustainable Living Festival held at Cowes Cultural Centre on Saturday 5 June was a huge success in showcasing community action on local sustainability issues and renewable energy systems.

Attendees at the event were able to enjoy demonstrations from busy bees, see a pellet fueled fire, or join the new community-based group Transition Phillip Island that aims to increase food production on the island.

There were many products and giveaways available, from water saving devices through to low impact cleaning solutions.

For the art lover, there was some fantastic artwork on display made from recycled products.

Westernport Water took part by showing the latest water saving and conservation methods for gardens.

It gave video demonstrations and distributed many sought after water-related giveaways.

A qualified Westernport Water representative was also on hand to give free residential water audits to assist customers wanting to minimise their own water consumption.

Permanent residents can take advantage of Westernport Water’s showerhead and trigger nozzle exchange programs by contacting customer service on 1300 720 711.
