Making Sustainability Second Nature
Second Nature is a community program to make sustainability second nature in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs.
We're lucky to live in a unique and beautiful corner of the world. As incredible as our home is, it needs our help to continue to thrive.
That’s why we're working with you to make sustainability more than just an occasional concern. We're keen to make caring for our place a normal part of our every day, in the way we work, live and play.
So, we're here to help with free resources, events, initiatives and info.
The more people who join our Second Nature community, the greater positive impact we will have for the good of our ‘hood.

The coast: protect it, respect it and snap it!
13 December 2019
Summer is here, baby! Get ready for sand between toes, salty hair, cold drinks, BBQ smells and sticky ice cream. It’s the time when our coastlines heave with crowds seeking cool relief in the ocean. Our world-renowned beautiful beaches attract millions of visitors each year, mostly in summer. Bondi Beach alone sees more than one million visitors annually. We’re also a coast-loving nation, with more than 8 in 10 Australians living within 50 kilometres of our shore.
Creating memories not garbage

Roll up your festive sleeves, folks – the silly season’s almost here. It’s also the time us Aussies create 30% more waste than any other time. That’s a whole lot more stuff going to landfill (think: packaging, wrapping, unwanted gifts and uneaten food).
Be a rockstar in your garden

Savage Garden, Plant Life and D.I.G aren’t just musical acts: they’re also the names given to some of the edible gardens in the eastern suburbs as part of an urban farming movement in our backyards and on our balconies.
