CLEAN GREEN ROLE MODELS
RHYS and Vanessa Kummerow share a passion they want to pass on.
The owners of Childers Eco Lodge are finalists in the 2016 Premier’s Sustainability Award and they reckon they have a shot at the top spot.
While they say it’s not easy being green – take the thousands they have spent on their bioseptic tank, and, Rhys says, the hoops they have jumped through for its approval by council – the couple also say it’s worth it.
“We want people to come and stay here and experience it,” Vanessa said.
