Students for Change is currently undertaking two major projects within our community centred around environmentalism.
Our first program is to establish a local clean-up group within the Stonnington and Boroondara area to help clean waste from local parks and other areas where the group can assist. We will also be running a series of beach cleans through the group, cleaning the local beaches in and around St Kilda.
Our second program will involve working with local cafes to become more environmentally friendly by connecting them with biodegradable cup suppliers and changing the way they market their goods as to encourage the use of reusable cups from customers.
We are focusing mainly on cafes in the Armadale, Malvern, Prahran, Hawthorn, Toorak and South Yarra area, with the aim to help at least 50 cafes become more environmentally friendly.
