‘Tis the season to be sustainable

Tuesday 11 December 2018

If you’re searching for the perfect gift, or even a gift for the hard-to-buy-for, this Sunday’s Art on the Path at Broulee might have just what you’re after.

Art on the Path is a sustainable market with stalls featuring locally hand-crafted wares, treasures, jewellery, art and clothes, as well as the opportunity to learn more about local environmental projects and community groups.

“You’ll be amazed by the diversity and ingenuity of local artists, and be inspired by their passions for protecting our natural environment,” says Council’s Environmental Education Officer Bernadette Davis.
“Come along and find out how you can reduce your reduce your environmental footprint this Christmas – like how to wrap all your Christmas presents in a more sustainable way.

“Or you could even forgo all that excess ‘stuff’ we purchase at Christmas and opt for one of the many local artisan handcrafted treasures that will be on sale instead.

“When you give some thought to what you buy, where it comes from, who made it and how far it travelled, buying locally-made sustainable gifts is not only a gift for the recipient, it’s a gift for the environment and the local economy as well.”

Market-goers can find out how to be more sustainable in everyday life by chatting to Council’s environment team, or find out what activities are happening this summer from Nature Coast Marine Group volunteers.

Art on the Path will be held 8am-12pm on Sunday 16 December on the shared pathway on Coronation Drive, Broulee (opposite the Broulee Post Office).
