Love is in the air at Art on the Path

Wednesday 4 April 2018

Eurobodalla Council together with local artists and environmental groups want residents to start a love affair with the planet at Art on the Path on Sunday 15 April.

The special ‘Love is in the Air’ themed event will feature a range of stalls from local artists and makers who can inspire you to lead a more sustainable lifestyle and help you take charge of your own war on waste.

You can say goodbye to single-use plastics by ditching cling wrap and plastic bags and grabbing beeswax wraps and a sewing kit from Eurobodalla Boomerang Bags.

There will be locally hand-crafted wares, treasures, art and clothes, as well as the opportunity to learn more about community groups such as the Nature Coast Marine Group and Broulee Mossy Point Community Association.

Council’s Queen of Hearts and all things Landcare Emma Patyus will be there to help residents understand their local patch of green, whether it’s advice on backyard plants or information about local reserves.

Council’s Environmental Education Officer Bernadette Davis says love for the planet is in the air, and it’s time to get passionate.

“Whether it’s the whisper of the trees or the thunder of the seas that you love, we are asking you to come along to Art on the Path to see how you can reduce your environmental footprint and share the love for planet,” she said.

“Remember the old saying ‘think global but act local’. If everyone changed some of their regular consumer behaviours by choosing more sustainable ways to shop and play we can reduce some of the negative impacts on the planet and its wildlife.
