About Second Nature

We live in a unique and beautiful corner of the world, and Waverley Council is committed to keeping it this way. As incredible as our home is, it needs our help to continue to thrive. But we can’t do it alone.

That’s why we are working with you to make sustainability more than just an occasional concern. We want protecting our place to be a normal part of our everyday. We want it to be second nature. Just like your weekend coastal walk, your evening ocean dip or your morning juice fix.

Whether you’re reducing water or cutting energy bills, designing a sustainable building, installing solar power, recycling better or cycling more, every action counts. The more people who join the collective effort to make sustainability second nature, the greater the chance we have to protect this awesome place.

Imagine what we could achieve if 10,000 locals all pledged one action, to reduce emissions, cut down on waste, or save water!
