CIRCULAR LIVING CHALLENGE WITH BOROONDARA COUNCIL
We partner with Circular Economy Victoria (CEV) to develop a Circular Living Challenge for Boroondara Council.
The Circular Living Challenge is a 30-day challenge focused on engaging the community and local merchants in Boroondara to achieve a more circular economy. Throughout the Circular Living Challenge month, the participants learn about circular economy principles, discover local, sustainable businesses, and engage with government initiatives.
This Council-driven initiative supports sustainable post Covid-19 recovery and develops local community resilience. The Circular Living Challenge involves 300 households, 30 local retailers (such as local cafes, restaurants and independent shops) and ten innovative companies leading the circular economy in Australia.
Learn about circular living and adopt sustainable practices at your own pace.
