South Gippsland Landcare Network (SGLN) is inviting all community members to captuire their vehicles carbon emissions for the year 2024 with a simple donation.

In 2023, we raised over $2,000 for the program, representing the emissions of 23 vehicles. The funds were allocated to the Arawata Landcare Group who have planted 1666 indigenous seedlings over 1ha of land. As well as capturing the emissions of the 23 vehicles, the seedlings will also create valauble koala habitat. 

We are at it again for 2024, we hope to double the number of vehicles with their emissions captured and therefore, double the amount of koala habitat we can re-establish. 

The Real Carbon Action program uses tax deductible donations to plant indigenous trees and shrubs in South Gippsland to help capture the carbon emitted from the use of personal vehicles.
These plantings:

  • Store carbon
  • Create habitat for wildlife
  • Protect precious waterways
  • Reduce nutrient run off into streams
  • Protect precious soil
  • Create shade for livestock.

Capturing your vehicle’s carbon starts at just $56 and is a great Christmas Gift idea for the environmentally minded family member or that person who has everything!  Taxable donations can be made online at sgln.net.au or via the SGLN office and includes bumper sticker and certificate.

“Let’s make 2023 the year we all reduce our carbon footprint.” Jillian Staton,
Chair South Gippsland Landcare Network.
