We want to help you to conserve energy and reduce the need to consume virgin, non renewable, natural resources

 

Reuse, recycle, grow your own food, have chickens and reduce your waste!

 

BECOME MORE SELF-SUFFICIENT

Our values

 

 

Mother Earth is struggling

 

Most people are aware of the damage that has been done to our planet. 

 

The contribution that the building and construction industry has made is considerable. The construction industry sends tonnes of reusable and recyclable material to landfill everyday. The energy, water and resources that are wasted in constantly producing new building materials is a travesty.

 

Everyday we follow the same linear produce-consume-waste pattern, perpetuating and compounding the the damage to our environment.

 

Fortunately, there are many things that each one of us can do no matter your income, living spaces or time constraints. 

 

Sustainable Tradies gives you the option to stop contributing to the current linear economical system model of produce-consume-waste and start creating a circular economy, diverting waste from landfill into a new and improved life.

 

ENVIRONMENT

 

We reuse different types of construction materials that are still in good condition but unfortunately are wasted and sent to landfill.

 

We create products and repair from waste. We reuse materials when possible, from residential and commercial building waste and from verge collections. From here we can obtain a significant number of reusable items and turn any kind of waste in something useful.

 

The benefits are numerous!

Preserving natural habitats through removing the need for virgin material

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions of methane by helping you divert your household food waste from landfill to home compost

Conserving energy that would otherwise be used in the extraction, production and transport of virgin materials

 

 

SUSTAINABILITY

 

Food Security: Population is growing rapidly and our local climate is getting hotter and dryer every year. It is important that we are able to know how to create good soils, grow our own food and reduce waste.

 

By reusing materials, reducing waste, encouraging people to grow their own food affordably, we believe we are meeting the principles of sustainability; triple bottom line benefit to Society, Environment and Economy.

 

AFFORDABILITY

 

We live in one of the richest countries in the world, however the gap between the rich and the poor increases everyday, poverty keeps growing and social and economical differences are quite remarkable.

 

By using second hand-recycled materials and waste we can offer affordable construction prices for the local community. By helping you set up a more self sufficient lifestyle, we are helping you to save money now and into the future.

 

REDUCING/REUSING/RECYCLING

 

When creating products from waste, building garden beds, compost, worm farms and chook pens, we are reducing a considerable amount of waste, especially food scraps. Chickens will go through most of your food scraps the rest can go in the compost and worm farm to build the soil for your garden bed.
