ORANGE SUSTAINABILITY LIVING WEEK AND EXPO

Orange Sustainable Living Week starts on Sunday 29 May 2022 with the Sustainable Living Expo, which brings together exhibitors providing information and ideas on how you can be more sustainable. They include reducing waste, increasing recycling, more efficient use of water, electric vehicles, biodiversity, climate change and the environment.

There will also be a range of speakers at the Expo, including the well-known Craig Reucassel from “The War on Waste” and “The Fight for Planet A – Our Climate Change Challenge” ABC TV programs.

If you are interested in being an exhibitor, request an Exhibitor’s Pack from the Rotary Club’s Secretary by emailing contact@rotarycluboforange.org.au

During the week following the Expo, activities include a School Sustainable Cooking Competition, Wetlands guided walks, Community Revegetation planting at Waratah’s Wetlands and further activities that will be added as they are confirmed.

BBQ at Orange Health Service

On the third Friday of each month, the Rotary Club of Orange sells BBQ lunches at the Orange Health Service (The Hospital) on Forest Road. We will be on the grass near the front car parks if it is fine, and if it is raining, we may not be there at all. Come and buy an egg and bacon roll or a sausage sandwich (with free onions if you like) and a drink between 11 am and 1.30 pm.
