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.
