Getting to the festival

The Boroondara Village Festival is being held on the same day as the Glenferrie Festival, so public parking will be limited in the area. Glenferrie Road will also be closed between Barkers and Burwood roads during the festival.

To avoid traffic congestion, we recommend you either take public transport or take advantage of our free bike valet service.

The bike valet service is located on Burwood Rd next to the Hawthorn Arts Centre. The service is available from 12 pm to 4 pm.


Reduce waste and your carbon footprint

How to reduce your recycling carbon footprint

The waste we generate is no longer considered rubbish or trash to be throw into landfill; and rightly so. A great number of nations including the USA, UK and Australia cannot keep up with volume of their waste, so what do you do; we ship to places like China and 3rd world countries to deal with our problem.

China has recently informed the world

“By the end of 2017, imports of mixed paper, scrap plastics, including PVC, PET, polyethylene and polystyrene, basically a lot of packaging material, will be banned from entering China. Industry bodies have called the measure “devastating”. Source:-Raconteur

On a recent research trip to the UK I heard lots of talk around reduce, reuse and recycling. One major supermarket; Iceland is vowing to eliminate plastic on all own-branded products and Prime Minster Theresa May pledging to eliminate all avoidable plastic waste within 25 years as part of the government’s environmental strategy.

All positive but how can we make our waste a valuable commodity? Continue reading

Testimonial

“Great wardrobe declutter notes thank you – I feel I am on a roll. Even if I only manage 10 mins a day of overall declutter. Having turned all coat hangers to face the same way, I reacquainted myself with many items of clothing, which will hopefully get an outing in coming weeks/months” Pat ~ Box Hill

Wasteful clutter

Refuse Disposable Stuff

One way to stop clutter and disposable stuff entering our lives is to refuse it access. We have been sold this idea that everything needs to be convenient, to be on hand when ever we want STUFF.

Sadly; disposable and convenience has become a huge inconvenience to our environment, putting great stress on our water ways, soils not to mention our recycling systems.

Have we taken disposal and throw away to the extreme where we treat our planet as disposable, not worthy of respect?

I truly hope we have not, make 2018 the year of refusing disposable clutter
