Spreading the word online

Tweed Shire Council’s first Sustainability and Environment e-Newsletter is now available online, allowing residents of the Tweed to read more about what they like, when they like.

The Summer 2015 issue of the Sustainability e-Newsletter was released in December 2015 and can now be found on Council’s website at www.tweed.nsw.gov.au/eNewsletters
Mayor of Tweed Councillor Katie Milne said the release of the first e-Newsletter was another step on the path to spreading the word about sustainability and environmental stewardship.

“We are very lucky to live in the Tweed and what everybody loves about the region is its astounding environmental values.

“The Tweed community is very savvy and understands the imperative and financial benefits of being sustainable, so it’s great that the Sustainability and Environment E-Newsletter is focused on providing our community with more information about ways residents can take action.

“As residents of the Tweed it is important we educate ourselves, and each other, to inspire local communities and agencies to preserve and enhance environmental values for the future.

“This first Sustainability and Environment issue contains many useful articles and stories including an extension of the Sustainable Agriculture survey, Murwillumbah’s new seed library, tips on recycling wrapping paper and products at Christmas, how to join the Backyard Habitat for Wildlife program and how Council has been saving on electricity throughout the year.

“The e-Newsletters will be a great read, inexpensive to produce and will provide a wide range of information about Council programs and services along with other information that will benefit the community.”

Tweed Shire Council aims to provide additional e-News in 2016 that will focus on business, arts and culture, and Tweed Regional Aquatic Centres (TRAC).
