I want to thank each and every one of you for the support you have given us today and over 40 years of campaigning, and assure you that TEC won’t be silenced even as the battle to preserve our natural resources intensifies.
Today you helped ensure that in 2017 we can:
- The latest research proves the urban tree canopy is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and is essential to a healthy happy lifestyle. We have a strategy to protect our green spaces and urban trees with strong laws and visionary planning.
- We have a national plan to eliminate 70% of plastic pollution entering in our oceans by 2020, in coalition with the Boomerang Alliance. Our innovative blueprint includes more container deposit schemes, a ban on single use plastic bags and microbeads in all products, and a much-needed stop to factory pollution.
- Our green, sustainable vision for a rapidly-expanding Greater Sydney. We’ve brought together 15 peak professional, community and academic groups to push government plans so that Sydney will not become a monstrous concrete wasteland.
- Our report on household battery storage and solar rooftops in the National Electricity Market will kick-start a green energy revolution. Our extensive campaign and lobbying expertise will ensure Australians get a fair go.
But protecting our environment is ongoing work. I would be honoured if you could become a member of the TEC family by making a monthly donation today.
Thank you again for standing with TEC for a brighter, greener future for us all.
