Diversified Communications have decided to make their next Australian Waste & Recycling Exhibition (AWRE) a light (carbon) footprint event by providing 100 trees to a community group for planting. Working with Fifteen Trees, trees were distributed to Manor Lakes Secondary College, Wyndham Vale, where the students planted the native trees on their school grounds.

Manor Lakes is participating in the AuSSI Vic / Resource Smart 5 star accreditation process and are keen to make a difference to the sustainability of their local area. Planting 100 trees, takes them further along the pathway to a sustainable school plus the trees make for a great habitat area for native insects, mammals and birds.

A huge thank you to Pedro Gallo who contacted Fifteen Trees. AWRE  is happening this August in Melbourne and is a significant event that pulls together the ‘movers and shakers‘ of the waste and recycling industry. For more information on AWRE please visit www.awre.com.au
