Friends of Westgate.

TREES PLANTED

Fifteen Trees is very excited to announce the inclusion of Flexicar to our supporters group. The new marketing manager of the car share company, Simon Bracken, was very keen to reduce the fleet’s carbon emissions. Didn’t even have to resort to my chinese-burn. Car sharing for metro people is a great alternative to car ownership and taking the number of cars off the road has to be good  for our air supply.

The first 75 trees were planted by The Friends of Westgate Reserve. Tony Flude (co-coordinator) writes – “Friends of Westgate Park planted out the trees (coast Banksia) along the Yarra, not far upstream from where the river flows into Port Phillip Bay”.  [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”]
A fabulous volunteer planting trees to improve the reserve under the West Gate Bridge.
