The ocean is essential to our life on earth.

It provides food for the world and livelihood to more than 4 billion* people.

It gives us the beaches we love, play + live on.

It regulates our climate + absorbs huge amounts of carbon from the atmosphere.

Seeing first hand the impact of our actions on biodiversity in the bay, Sheree wants us to aim for zero waste, avoid single-use plastics + Recycle Right.

Only 9% of all plastic ever made has been recycled. We need to dramatically reduce the amount we use.

Not only is the plastic ending up in our oceans and environment. It’s ending up in US.

Yup. On average, we ingest about one credit card’s worth of plastic a week.

Recycle right + precious resources can be made into something new.

Recycle wrong + we waste the resources that made the packaging in the first place.

Recycle Right with ‘four bins’.

1: RECYCLING = paper/cardboard. glass. tin, hard plastics (milk cartons etc.) Keep these empty, dry, clean + UNBAGGED (no plastic bags ever in recycle)

2: FOOD SCRAPS – Do everything to keep food scraps from the bin.

Some councils accept food scraps in the food + garden organics (FOGO) bin. Check yours.

Set up your compost or worm bin to keep these nutrients from landfill where they harm (creating methane, a toxic gas) + get them into the soil where they heal. (Healthy soil draws more carbon out of the atmosphere.)

3: SOFT PLASTICS – Scrunchable Chip, lollie + cereal packets go to the supermarket soft plastics bin to get made into new things! Drop at Redcycle bin at selected supermarkets. redcycle.net.au

4: LANDFILL – Aim for this bad-boy to be your smallest bin. It’s the stuff we can’t reuse (polystyrene, broken crockery, ceramics, pyrex used tissues, nappies, wipes)

– “It’s only one straw!” said 8 billion people…everything counts.

– Avoid single use packaging. Remember your reusable bag, coffee cup, water bottle.

– Make it easy with 4 separate, clearly labeled bins (as above.)

– Keep recycling loose. Never bagged.

– Textiles in good condition go to charity, repurpose OR landfill.

– Flatten cardboard to maximise space.

– Food + liquids contaminate other stuff in the bin. Empty containers first.

– E-waste (electrical + batteries) start fires! (Check council, Officeworks or supermarket for drop-offs.)

– Look for packaging that’s recyclable, reusable or compostable;

PS: If in doubt, leave it out. We can’t unscramble the egg, so avoid “wish-cycling” (wish-cycling is doing it wrong + wishing the magic recycling fairy will separate it for you. She won’t.)

Ep#17 Tony Wolfe says NO MORE FOSSIL FUELS

Tony’s worked in coal for 40 years.
Now he’s calling for us to leave fossil fuels (coal, oil, gas) in the ground and switch to renewables. How?

1/ Choose banks + super funds that don’t invest in fossil fuels.

It’s one of the biggest positive actions we can take.

Call your bank and super fund today.

Ask if they invest your money in fossil fuels.

If they do, switch to one that doesn’t.

Many banks have committed to getting out of coal, but still fund gas.

Gas is a dirty fossil fuel.

What’s your bank’s stance on GAS?

Take the Bank Rank.


With UniSuper we can look forward to a future worth retiring for, that doesn’t cost the earth.


2/ Switch to a greener energy company
Like Momentum Energy – 100% owned by Australia’s largest renewable energy generator, Hydro Tasmania.

Whichever power company you choose, the energy you get is pretty much identical.

So support our clean energy future by choosing one that scored 4.5 stars in Greenpeace’s 2022 Green Electricity Guide.

Want to go one greener?

3/ Consider switching to a carbon neutral telco.

BELONG is Australia’s 1st certified carbon neutral mobile and internet provider (at no extra cost you.)

So you can surf the real wide web, while caring about the real wide world.

Because there’s no TikTok on a dead planet.

NB: Humanity’s goal isn’t offsetting carbon emissions.

It’s to stop burning the fossil fuels (coal, oil, gas) fuelling climate change.

It’s gonna take us all, ya’ll.


Ep#16 Dr. Chrisanta Muli says EDUCATE GIRLS

Educating girls is one of the most powerful, yet overlooked, tools we have against climate change.

If you do ONE THING, make this it!

For the cost of a coffee a day, you can support one girl’s education.

Supporting girls’ education through non-profit organisations like One Girl is one of the simplest and most effective solutions to the climate crisis.

How does educating girls help reduce the impacts of climate change?

By investing in girls’ education, we unlock their creativity, power, resilience and leadership.

Educated girls stay in school longer, marry later and ensure their girls are educated too.

Educated girls are empowered to make better choices for themselves and their communities.

Educated girls are changing the world.

Today’s girls are tomorrow’s mothers, leaders, scientists, campaigners and politicians.

Educating girls brings 132 million (currently excluded) people to the table to actively participate in climate solutions.

Educated girls are transforming economies, societies and the planet.

Join the climate change movement by educating a girl.
