Ergon Energy powers up SOWN

Ergon Energy have recently shown their green credentials with not one but two donations to SOWN!

Staff at the Banyo depot held a fundraising BBQ in September as part of their 'Green Team' Landcare Week activities. The money raised was doubled, thanks to Ergon Energy's '$ for $' policy, resulting in a donation of just over $750 to SOWN.

Not to be outdone, Ergon Energy's city-based Sustainability Team held a recycled book sale for National Recycling Week in November. Ergon staff donated books which were then 'recycled' during a lunch time sale. Other 'trickier' recyclables such as batteries, corks and lightbulbs were also collected for recycling. The book sale raised $270 with proceeds again going to SOWN.

Huge thanks to Natasha and Dean from Ergon for organising the fundraising events. Ergon's Green Team have helped out at a number of SOWN's Clean Up Australia and National Tree Day events and we look forward to working with them again in 2010.
