First certified carbon neutral bricks in Australia

Brickworks Building Products has announced the launch of the country’s first carbon neutral bricks and pavers.

Are you ready? Weather ready? 


The Weather Ready program is part of Port Phillip Council's climate change adaptation effort- neighbours looking out for each other and being prepared for extreme weather events – like floods, storms and heatwaves.
Extreme weather is a threat to life and property and we want our community to be better prepared. We would like to see residents prepare their own plan for extreme weather events.
As part of the Weather Ready program, volunteer Weather Ready mentors get training and are funded to prepare their neighbours, street or apartment block for extreme weather events. 
  
We're looking for more connected, capable and enthusiastic volunteers to become community Weather Ready mentors.
 
Our next round of training will be in September 2014. Please come along to an information session on Tuesday 2nd September at 6:30 pm at the Middle Park Community Centre or call 9209 6161.
