Step into world of sus­tain­able liv­ing

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Front Page - Taelor Pelusey

Sus­tain­able House Day is fast ap­proach­ing and Mar­garet River res­i­dents are urged to get in­volved.

Michael and Britta Sorensen, of Sorensen Ar­chi­tects, are re­cruit­ing houses with sus­tain­able el­e­ments to open up their doors for the na­tion­wide event.

“We’d love for all an­gles of sus­tain­abil­ity to get in­volved,” Mrs Sorensen said.

“New houses, ren­o­va­tions, tiny houses, retro-fits.

“They don’t have to be per­fect; just any that have made a de­cent ef­fort to­wards sus­tain­abil­ity.”

Mar­garet River has taken part in the event for sev­eral years, but 2016 was the first co-or­di­nated ef­fort.

Mr Sorensen said eight of the 150 prop­er­ties in­volved last year were lo­cal and all drew an ap­pre­cia­tive and re­spect­ful crowd.

The cou­ple agreed sus­tain­able liv­ing was con­tribut­ing to the cul­ture of Mar­garet River and urged peo­ple to open their doors or visit some prop­er­ties on the day to learn about sus­tain­abil­ity tech­niques.

The event will be held on Septem­ber 17 and strives for peer-topeer ed­u­ca­tion and net­work­ing.
