1. SUPPORT RENEWABLE
Progressing our world from fossil fuels to renewables is complex. But powering our homes with a company that champions renewables is easy. Momentum Energy is 100% owned by Hydro Tasmania, Australia's largest renewable energy generator. Switch today. After all, a little momentum goes a long way
2. FAST, FAR, FUME-FREE
When they're not walking or riding a bike, The New Joneses get around in their Tesla Model X electric vehicle. Model X is the safest, quickest and most capable sport utility vehicle in history. With all-wheel drive and a 100 kWh battery providing 565 kilometers of range, Model X has ample seating for seven adults and all of their gear. And it's ludicrously fast, accelerating from zero to 100 kilometers per hour in as quick as 3.1 seconds.
3. SMART SOLAR
Flex PowerPlay generates solar, and a whole lot more. It optimises how you use energy, integrates with leading batteries and can even automate your appliances so things like air-con turn on automatically when your system is generating excess solar. As your home evolves with smart technology, so too will your PowerPlay system.
4. STORE NOW. USE LATER
The New Joneses love their Tesla Powerwall home battery. It stores their solar generated energy to use when needed, minimising grid-reliance and providing backup power. Compatible with new or existing solar systems, The New Joneses seamlessly monitor and automatically manage their Powerwall and solar panels anywhere with the Tesla App.
5. CUT OUT THE WASTE
Aussies! We're the solution to our waste problem. With individuals, households and businesses doing our bit, together we can cut out the waste. Bring your own bag, refuse excess packaging, have your coffee 'to stay' (not takeaway), food-shop to a list, use the leftovers and compost food scraps.
6. LIVE LITTLE, TREAD LIGHTLY
Downsizing our homes de-clutters our lives and minds, creating more room for connection with nature, community, and self. Little living is healthier for us and our planet. Build a little home, live a big life!
7. CUT THE CHEMICALS
Keep chemicals from our skin, air, waterways and food supply. Use natural cleaning products, like lemons and vinegar. Choose grey-water-safe, plant-based products, like Earth Choice and Organic Care (who use recycled and recyclable packaging.)
8. SOIL: WHERE FOOD BEGINS
Like us, soil needs food. The Back to Earth Initiative turns our green waste (grass clippings, prunings, flowers, weeds etc) into nutrient-rich compost to help farms and gardens thrive. Using council green waste collection correctly helps our farmers turn today's green waste into tomorrow's food and wine!
9. MORE PLANTS. LESS MEAT
With red meat taking 28 times more land and 11 times more water to produce than chicken or pork, why not swap red meat for white? Try Meat Free Monday or Meat Free May... or just eat more veggies everyday!
10. ENOUGH STUFF!
Refuse, reduce, reuse, reimagine, repair, recycle. Ask yourself "do I really need it?" and "when I throw something away, where is away?" Experience Buy Nothing New Month and the new normal of shopping less, living more!
P.S. LOVE YOUR MOTHER!
Mother Nature is our essential life-support system. Biophilia (the science behind our human need to connect with nature) explains how hospital patients recover faster looking at trees than brick walls; that productivity skyrockets in workplaces with natural light, plants and breezes. Bring mother nature into your everyday. Good for her, essential to us!
