Buderim residents paint the town green

Buderim residents are fighting for a brighter more sustainable future for their town by embracing Sunshine Coast Council's Living Smart program together as a community.

Inspired by the 2008 World Environment Day sustainability forum, where Mayor Bob Abbot urged communities to find their voice for sustainability, Buderim locals have been asking what they can do to reduce the carbon footprint for their village.

Sharon Stott, Environment Project Officer for Sunshine Coast Council said that the Living Smart Program has so many avenues to explore.

"It is great at the household level, but when communities back the project like they have done here in Buderim, it shows the true power of the program," Ms Stott said.

"The wonderful thing is Living Smart is easy; the changes are small and simple, but so effective. Multiply this by the population of an entire town and you have a town making a huge dent in their carbon footprint.

"Buderim has already jumped on board with Green Sunshine's, 'Coolest 100 Streets' initiative, which aims to build community strength by signing up as many streets across the region.

"The evening has a Buderim flavour and will cover practical ways to reduce the local carbon footprint, with inspiring presentations on community gardens, the Green Sunshine movement, and the where to from here."
