We’ve been through a lot, lately. Drought, floods, bushfires and a pandemic. However, one hugely positive outcome from all this, is our unrelenting community spirit. We can do anything,  when we all work together.

Cessnock City Council is a BIG customer when it comes to doing business and we LOVE to buy locally!

Advance Cessnock City and partners have worked collectively and are very excited to announce  the new Support Local Campaign.

Support Local is an initiative of Advance Cessnock City in partnership with local Chambers and Associations establishing a greater support and promotion of local businesses within the community.

Locals supporting locals is all about working together. It’s about shopping and buying local; as well as hiring local talent – it’s about keeping  doors open! When we support local, every member of the community gets to enjoy the economic, social and environmental benefits; not just now, but well into the future.

To ensure the success of the campaign we need YOU, our community to work collectively with Advance and partners to bring about change!

 

*COVID-19: Keep safe, please adhere to the social distancing rules.

Rude! Though mornings do create very deep poetry ... no wait, that was the coffee. ⁣

Coffee is the answer... again. ⁣

ZERO WASTE????

It's a trending word. But what can it really mean for you? 

Many of us, myself included, can take a bit of an "All or nothing" approach to many things. But such need not be the case for zero waste, or low waste living. 

There are many different places to start, and perfection doesn't even need to be your goal! The important thing is to have a go! 

My tried and tested tips for having a go are: 

1)  Make one change at a time, the way you buy food I feel is the perfect place to start. Make simple switches to reduce packaging that's harmful to the environment. 

2) Find like-minded people to share your ideas with! The power of encouragement and insight of others is incredible. 

3) Don't expect perfection! Say you were learning to sew, you don't expect to make yourself an evening gown in week 1. Same with going low-or zero-waste, slow and steady wins the race, without the mental exhaustion or budget blowouts. 

So have a go! 

If you have a tip to add to my little list, tell us in the comments! ⬇️

𝘿𝙤 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙨𝙪𝙛𝙛𝙚𝙧 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨?😮⁣

I have a feeling I've had this for quite sometime. But it's an OCD with a difference. It keeps me alert for at least 37 minutes. It allows words to come out and movement of arms, legs and some work gets done. ⁣

That's a win in my books. ⁣
