ENGINEERING student Joe Stewart, 22, from Port Kembla said he “never knew that just a regular job like mowing the lawns can relate back to the environment”.
“It’s pretty good news really that leaving your lawn to grow a bit longer is a good thing, I love mowing the lawns but will be happy to leave it a week or so longer now,” Mr Stewart said. “I live in a share house so we share the mowing, but on a nice sunny afternoon it can be a pretty rewarding job.”
Mr Stewart said he has become more aware recently of everyday tricks he can do to try to live a more sustainable life and play his part in reducing emissions.
“I’ve become more aware of carbon footprint and try to do little things to help the environment,” he said. “Things like trying to walk or ride my pushbike if I can, or buying energy saving light bulbs are easy ways to be more sustainable.”
