Oz woman helps launch an environment friendly campaignMay 20th, 2009 - 5:26 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, May 20 (ANI): AN Australian businesswoman Natalie Isaacs was dazed to realize that how her own measures to conserve energy and our planet helped launch a campaign to protect our environment.
Natalie made her family adopt few measures at home to avoid wasting energy and was dazed to see the results.
“Until a few years ago it all seemed too hard. I wasn’t connected to the problem and then I took a closer look and found you can help by changing little things in your daily life,” the businesswoman and mother of four from Newport on Sydney’s Northern Beaches said yesterday,” The Daily Telegraph quoted Natalie, as saying.
“We did simple things. Turned off appliances at the power point, lights off if someone’s not in the room, the kids have two worms farms for organic waste. I use green bags. We try to use as little packaging as possible.We’ve cut our carbon emissions and saved money too - our last quarter power bill was down 12 per cent on the year before,” Natalie added.
Soon after she decided to show other women that how easy it is to conserve energy, by taking few important measures.
Thus she co-founded a campaign called 1 million women with conservationist Michelle Grosvenor, to tell other women that how they can contribute towards saving our planet.
“I think many are like me. I had my head completely buried in the sand,” Natalie said. But our website - http://www.1millionwomen.com.au - shows how you can cut carbon emissions daily,” Natalie added. (ANI)
