By taking action now, and making sustainability a fundamental consideration in everything we do, we are helping to maximise future economic growth, maintain our quality of life and protect our unique environment.

Being 'sustainable' means continually thinking and choosing ways of doing things with care for the environment that sustains us so generously. It can be fun, too.

Support and advice on how to reduce waste is also available from the Nelson Environment Centre.
