Sydney Ideas to green your life

The City of Sydney ran "Live Green - Ideas to green your life" in Victoria Park, Camperdown, Sunday 17 August. I went along and was impressed with the "City of Sydney Green House". This is display in the shape of a house, fitted with environmental products.

Also impressive was a shipping container turned into a second hand clothing boutique. Windows and doors had been cut into the container, but it was otherwise unchanged, giving it an industrial aesthetic. Instead of using conventional windows and doors the steel cut from the container had been simply hinged. At the end of the day the windows and doors had been closed ready for it to be moved. It then looked like any shipping container.

Visi had some clever cardboard tables and chairs made from recycled paper.
