Residents are being encouraged to put the 3R’s, reduce, reuse and recycle, into practice and protect our local environment.

As part of Bundaberg Regional Council’s Turtle Awareness campaign, residents are being encouraged to put the 3R’s – reduce, reuse and recycle – into practice to help protect the local environment. 

Ways to reduce your energy consumption

The Reducing Urban Glow project has educated residents on the importance of reducing the negative impact of lighting on marine turtles.

Outside of lighting, there are many other ways to reduce energy consumption for the benefit of the natural environment.

Here are some tips for residents to reduce their energy consumption, impacts on the environment and their household electricity bills:

• Clean air conditioner filters at least twice a year to maximise efficiency

• Turn off appliances at the wall when not in use

• Use cold water for laundry where possible
