Marrickville householders get help to turn their house green free of charge
Marrickville residents can turn their house green and combat climate change
with the help of environmental group Easy Being Green.
Easy Being Green is visiting householders door-to-door and offering them the
opportunity to install energy efficient light globes and AAA rated water saving
showerheads free of charge through a verified home-installation process. With
verified installation, Easy Being Green can provide homes with globes for every
suitable light socket in the home and showerheads for all showers.
Easy Being Green teams will be visiting Marrickville households from Wednesday,
Paul Gilding, CEO at Easy Being Green and former Executive Director of
Greenpeace International, said householders now have the opportunity to invest
in the future of our earth.
“By installing energy saving light globes and water saving showerheads,
householders can save greenhouse gas pollution from entering earth’s atmosphere
and thousands of litres of water each year. They also save money off their
combined annual electricity and water bills,” Gilding said.
“With the installation, each householder must sign a form to give Easy Being
Green the right to trade the value of the greenhouse gas emissions they save by
installing the light globes and the showerheads.
“Everybody wins with installation: the householder saves money by reducing their
power bills, the environment benefits and Easy Being Green trades its carbon
certificates, which helps to promote reductions in greenhouse gas emissions,” he
Easy Being Green is amongst a limited number of organisations that are
accredited to trade carbon credits on to energy companies to assist them in
meeting mandatory emission targets set by the NSW Greenhouse Gas Abatement
In order to meet their targets, energy companies can undertake their own energy
efficiency and renewable energy initiatives and can also purchase carbon credits
from accredited providers like Easy Being Green.
Easy Being Green also gives Australians the opportunity to become Carbon Neutral
and reduce the emissions of carbon in the air.
