About the Sustainability Resource Guide

The Greener By The Day 2015 Calendar is a calendar with a difference; full of useful hints, tips and resources to live a more sustainable lifestyle.

Introducing the basics of climate change, sustainability and justice in the initial pages, the calendar provides monthly challenges that can have a positive impact on the environment and help us to live a more sustainable lifestyle, one day at a time.

The calendar is generous in size and provides ample space for you to keep track of your activities and events. Australian public holidays are listed, along with important environmental dates and events such as Earth Day and The (Melbourne) Sustainable Living Festival. A section is provided at the bottom of the calendar to encourage you to list your green goals for each month.

Printed by a local print company on 100% recycled paper with vegetable based inks, Greener By The Day has tried to minimise the impact on the environment, while still providing a high quality, attractive calendar to hang on your wall.

About the Creator - Rhonda Kimberley

rhonda.jpgIn Semester 1, 2014 I studied the subject “Sustainability, Climate Change and Justice” as part of my Masters in Aid and Development at Tabor College Victoria. Articles from Tearfund, Oxfam and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) helped me begin to understand the climate conversation.

Challenged by this current and urgent issue, I was prompted to make a personal response and reduce my carbon footprint. There is such a vast array of reports, books, documentaries, videos and organisations that provide valuable resources on how to reduce greenhouse (GHG) emissions produced by our lifestyle choices that I was overwhelmed and wondered “where do I begin”?

My answer was to address one area of sustainability one month at a time.
