Climate KISS Australia

Climate KISS

Our goal is simple: to encourage others to join in and make a difference while learning more about the exciting ways we can help care for our climate (many of which also help our communities and economies now). Tasks can be as simple as serving smaller portions of food to reduce food waste, or could involve making a small donation to help educate girls around the world. Our vision is that each team member will undertake at least one task from each of the seven key groups of solutions (electricity generation, food, women and girls, buildings and cities, land use, transport and materials),, but even exploring just one solution per team member would make a difference!. Let's do this. We will comment on and track our progress on Facebook too: https://www.facebook.com/climatekiss/

    Just wanted to say thanks for you inspiring leadership in this Heidi! It's been really fun, and I look forward to seeing what they do with it next. I hope to engage more fully next time (if there is a next time), but I certainly found it helpful and inspirational.

    Walkable cities scores #54 on the Drawdown 100 Best Solutions ranking. Part of my last challenge for the Eco Challenge is to send my support in regards to walkability of our city. I live in Sandgate to the north of the city and I actually think its one of the most walkable parts of Brisbane. Although it doesn't rank in the top 10...

    There's a bunch of Drawdown solutions related to food and its interesting perusing them. One that stood our for me is composting. A compost is of the things I have been able to set up in our house since we moved here last year. Great to know this ranks #60 among the Drawdown solutions. Also, its great to read the information about composting...

    I like how Drawdown groups and presents in solutions in different ways. In investigating building and cities solutions presented together, I happened upon Water Distribution ,ranked #71. By reducing leaks in our water pipes we can reduce emissions especially due to all the energy used to pump water along the pipes (from source to treatment...

    According to Drawdown "A third of the food raised or prepared does not make it from farm or factory to fork."... (http://www.drawdown.org/solutions/food/reduced-food-waste) In the USA, these are the commonly used phrases:  A "Best if Used By/Before" indicates when a product will be of best flavor or quality. It is not a...

    Small and quiet micro wind power generators are particularly suited for rural and remote locations that don't have access to electricity otherwise. As they operate they do not generate emissions. (http://www.drawdown.org/solutions/electricity-generation/micro-wind).  Micro wind is a relatively expensive option for renewables, especially...

    Ended the challenge well today I think. Brought someone else's food scraps home with me for chickens instead of landfill and also brought home some soft plastic for recycling

    This challenge has been inspiring to participate in and has certainly showed me how I can improve reducing my carbon, waste and pollution output in a whole range of ways. I feel like I need to do much more planning with my family to meet a full 3 weeks of vegetarian dinners, but we have found some vegetarian and vegan family favourite meals, I...

    Waiting to hear back from the body corp committee. There were no written constraints to installing solar panels, and there is no record of anyone before us having made a formal request. Here's hoping we will be trail blazers, and other owners will follow suit.

    Below is a copy of the email I sent to our Body Corportate as part of my eco challenges #10 and #40 relating to solar power systems. The image attached shows the roof of our townhouse with the proposed configuration of solar panels, including the two hot water panels.  Please feel free to use the structure of this email for your own body corp...
