3. LOVE FOOD, HATE WASTE
Victorians throw $4 billion of edible food a year to landfill. This creates methane & wastes the money, resources & energy used to grow, process, package & transport our food. Shop to a list, buy what you need, eat your leftovers! Download theyumeapp.com for half-price, surplus food from Melbourne's top cafes and restaurants.

4. THE FUTURE IS ELECTRIC
When The New Joneses aren't walking or cycling, they're cruising their way to our fume-free future in their electric BMW i3. Their emission-free drive makes trips to the petrol station a thing of the past.

6. GAME CHANGING SOLAR STORAGE
Every hour, the sun provides enough power for our global annual energy demands. Battery storage now means we can harness clean power, AND store it for later. As fossil-fuel costs rise & solar prices plunge, join the rooftop revolution and be part of our clean energy future.

7. CHEMICAL DETOX
Keep chemicals from our skin, air, waterways & food supply with natural cleaning products, like lemons & vinegar. Choose grey-water-safe, plant-based products, like Earth Choice & Organic Care, who use recycled & recyclable packaging.

8. SOIL - WHERE FOOD BEGINS
Like us, soil needs food. Keep kitchen scraps out of the bin. Feed them to chooks, put them in worm farms or make compost to send nutrients back into our soil. Council-supplied green-waste bins take garden waste to make compost for farms and gardens. Use today's food & garden waste to grow tomorrow's lunch.

9. SHOP LOCAL
About 50% of money spent with local independent shops goes back into our local economy, compared to less than 14% from chain stores. Support local independents, like Barry the butcher, for healthier, happier, connected communities. Get online for home delivery from locals you love.
