Green Renters is a small not-for-profit providing sustainable living advice specifically for those living in rental property. Renters are a growing part of the community and we believe their involvement is vital and possible. As the only organisation specifically for renters we deliver workshops, host events and run projects.
A volunteer board of management governs Green Renters and day-to-day duties are carried out by a combination of contract and unpaid volunteers.
Outreach, workshops and projects Officer
Our workshop program is our most popular activity with over 100 run in the past 18 months. We cover topics from our general ‘Sustainable living in Rental properties’ to lifestyle topics such as making your own jams and beauty products. With more requests for sessions in other cities (outside of Melbourne) and regional areas we’re struggling to run them all and need a few more hands on deck. We run workshops in different subjects, applications are welcome from those who have a little experience in all subjects or detailed knowledge in specific subjects. We pride ourselves on providing accessible, enjoyable workshops that aren’t a sales pitch or a sermon, the base premise and aim being that attendees may come for a variety of reasons, but they will leave at least thinking about sustainability.
