Sustainability on a Shoestring

In 2011 Metro Housing partnered with Sustainability Action Values Everyone (SAVE), City of Sydney Council, Marrickville Council and City of Canterbury to deliver the 'Sustainability on A Shoestring' program.

The program was developed in response to research that showed earlier sustainability initiatives had not reached those on low incomes. Sustainability on A Shoestring was a year long project which provided tenants with a series of professional workshops providing education about free and low cost ways for tenants to reduce their carbon footprint.

The project was completed with the development of a 'toolkit' a resource for those interested in running similar programs. Sustainability on A Shoestring put Metro Housing at the forefront of social housing and sustainability resource development and provided a select number of tenants with education and community building opportunities.

SAVE was funded by the NSW Government through its' Environmental Trust.
