Planning an Event
Green Living is about the philosophy of our whole lives. Whether it's growing your own veggies, buying green power, or using public transport, we can be and think green in every aspect of our lives.
Eco-shoppers reduce the amount of waste they produce by making environmentally conscious decisions when it comes to buying products.
Tips to Eco-shopping include:
- Buy products with minimal and/or recyclable packaging.
- Remember to bring your green bags to the shops.
- Buy in bulk.
- Shop at places that allow you to purchase food, drink, shampoo, laundry detergent, and similar items in reusable containers (such as honey from a health food shop, dry goods from a bulk supplier, or using a reusable cup to purchase take away hot beverages).

Green Living Gardens
Urban gardens are important spaces in which our native plants and animals can thrive given the right assistance.
We recommend the advice provided in these guides. They have been well-researched by experts and put together by gardeners, ecologists, and landscape architects thanks to Green Adelaide and Hills & Fleurieu Landscape Boards. They provide advice about native plants that you can use in place of common garden 'weedy' plants, landscaping design advice, and how to find and grow native plants.
And remember our Green Living Subsidies include the purchase of native plants to get you started on your native garden journey.
