Here are some great resources that will guide you to live greener!
The ‘Totally Renewable Phillip Island’ initiative is a collaborative partnership between various local community organisations, working together towards a totally renewable and zero emissions community. Organisations on board so far are; Energy Innovation Co-operative Ltd, Phillip Island Conservation Society, Phillip Island Landcare, Phillip Island Community and Learning Centre (PICAL), Plastic Free Phillip Island and San Remo, Boomerang Bas Phillip Island and San Remo.
The Phillip Island Landcare Group was one of Australia’s first Landcare groups, established in 1987, replacing the Phillip Island Farm Tree Group. The group conducts revegetation projects under the banner of the Phillip Island Wildlife Corridor, has an Urban Landcare Program and works closely with other partners to maintain and improve the Island’s unique natural assets from weeds and pest animals.
We CAN make a difference! PBFBC is a group of people who want to live in a plastic bag free community.
Plastic Bag Free Bass Coast began in 2016 by sewing Boomerang Bags. Since then the group has expanded into working out other ways of raising the issue of the environmental damage and cost of single plastic bags and promoting discussion about alternatives. The group is an ‘action’ group which welcomes any contribution and is formally auspiced by the South Gippsland Conservation Society.

Boomerang Bags is a global, grassroots movement. Connecting and empowering local communities to tackle plastic pollution at its source.
Boomerang Bags is about making bags, diverting waste, starting conversations, connecting with each other, fostering sustainable behaviour, and having fun!
You and your local community can be involved in any or all of this process. Find your nearest community to volunteer or donate materials, or start your own boomerang bags community!
