Preparing for Plastic Free July and events in June

Transition Town Mount Hawthorn is excited about having received an environment grant from the City of Vincent. We want to reduce waste in the City by printing and distributing 'No Junk Mail' stickers to local letter boxes with the aim of less advertising material to fill our bins. A big thank you to the City of Vincent. Also watch this space for an update about the project.

Our next event will be on Thursday 3 July. We will show the movie Bag It during Plastic Free July. The challenge for Plastic Free July is to not use any single use plastic during the month of July. Find out more here Please watch this video to get you inspired.
This is a hard challenge, but not as hard as you may think. Discuss the challenge with your family and come on board. Transition Town Mount Hawthorn has already signed up and there will be more posts around this subject. Transition Town Guildford ran a similar project in 2012.

We are currently working on developing a digital strategy.  If you would like to become involved and have special skills which might be useful, please contact us at
