Make res­o­lu­tion to live smarter

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

WITH the be­gin­ning of a new year, Shani Gra­ham is en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to think about ways they can live in a more en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly way.

Ms Gra­ham and fel­low sus­tain­abil­ity guru Tim Darby will run a Liv­ing Smart course in the City of South Perth from Fe­bru­ary 8 to March 22.

“It’s the time of the year when peo­ple are re­flect­ing on their life, as well as the state of the planet, eco­nomics and so­cial is­sues, and they are ask­ing them­selves what they can do,” she said.

“It can be the right time to make some smart changes.”

Ms Gra­ham said the course was de­signed for peo­ple who were aware of en­vi­ron­men­tal and so­cial is­sues but wanted to also take ac­tion.

“We cover a wide range of top­ics, in- d463934 clud­ing the tra­di­tional – power, water, liv­ing healthy – and there is a fo­cus on start­ing off with sim­ple things,” she said.

“It can be things such as chang­ing your use of plas­tic or cy­cling to the train sta­tion.

“My tip to peo­ple is to ask them­selves what’s im­por­tant to them, like fam­ily and friends, and take out all the other stuff.”
