Published: 27 February 2019
Nominations for the 2019 Logan Eco Awards are now open.
The Logan Eco Awards recognise those in the community who are taking steps to help Logan become a more environmentally sustainable city.
There are four categories in this year’s awards: Eco Champion; Junior Eco Champion; Eco Business and Eco Organisation.
City Parks, Animals, Environment and Waste Committee Chairperson Councillor Jennie Breene said the awards are open to all residents, businesses, schools and organisations within the City of Logan.
“There are so many residents and organisations across our Logan community who are working hard to make our city more sustainable,” Cr Breene said.
“The 2019 Logan Eco Awards are an ideal opportunity to showcase their amazing efforts and for us all to say thank you.”
If you know someone who does their part helping create a cleaner and greener city of Logan, whether it’s picking up rubbish during their morning walk, sharing sustainable lifestyle tips on social media, reducing their waste by composting at home or switching to sustainable products at work, show your support and nominate them for an Eco Award.
Previous awards winners include Griffith University, for its “Grows at Griffith” smart phone app, IKEA for its solar PV system; electronic recycling group Substation 33; and Healthy Cooking Company for their in-house herb garden and sustainable waste management.
Individuals and organisations recognised in previous awards include Kim Downs and Liz hall-Downs, who have participated in Land for Wildlife for the past 16 years; 11-year-old Savannah Christopher whose passion for wildlife saw her named as a finalist; Berrinba Wetlands BushCare Leader Roxanne Ives; and the Logan River Branch of Native Plants Queensland.
Nominations for this year’s awards close on Friday, March 29.
The winners will be recognised and thanked for their efforts at this year’s Logan Eco Action Festival (LEAF) on Sunday, May 26 at the Griffith University Logan campus.
