Happy 1st Birthday Katanning EcoHouse!

It’s been a year now since we went live with the Katanning EcoHouse website – and what a year it’s been!

The objective of the Katanning EcoHouse website and associated small business is “Leading, teaching and inspiring for a sustainable future” – we hope to help others reduce their environmental footprint, and have some fun along the way!

So, what have we achieved in the last 12 months? Here’s the (quite impressive) list!

  • 1794 visitors to our website have recorded 7153 page views.
  • 6 radio interviews and 2 podcasts.
  • 2 ABC Online news stories, including a short film.
  • Presented our sustainable living journey to more than 50 people at the Green Skills Sustainable Living Expo, Albany.
  • Taken 61 people on tours through our eco-house.
  • Taught 12 people better shopping habits on a Low Waste Shopping Tour.
  • Ella won the Australian Young Landcare Leader award, presented in Melbourne.
  • Had a stall at the Katanning Eco-Fair.
  • Established the @KatEcoHouse Twitter account.
  • Commenced work with Katanning Landcare on the 10 Week Bin Transformation project (due to launch in September).

And in the pipeline we have coming up:

  • EcoHouse Tour this Saturday 10th June, 10.30am (join us!).
  • A story in ‘Earth Garden‘ magazines Spring 2017 edition about our strawbale build.
  • A Low Waste Shopping Tour in September as part of Katanning EcoWeek.
  • Discussions underway with ‘That’s Life’ magazine for a story on low waste living.
  • Delivery of the 10 Week Bin Transformation, including a contract for Katanning EcoHouse to mentor participants on their waste reduction journey.

Hopefully over the next 12 months we can reach even more people! Can you help us do that?

  • Follow our blog,
  • share our news stories,
  • tell your friends,
  • attend an event or workshop with us, or
  • (better yet!) hire us to speak at your next event or run a workshop in your own community!

Hope to hear from you soon, and thanks for all your support in our first year 🙂

Love E, D, Z & Q
