Come and check out the Eco Zone for tons of handy hints, tips, workshops and advice that will show you how easy it is to be 'green'. Newtown residents have potential to lead the way in Sydney; showing how cooperative communities can do their bit, even in small, limited spaces that will make a positive difference to the environment.
