Bank Australia and SLT working together
People planting

You can make a big difference by switching to a responsible bank. Banks have huge impacts by deciding what gets financed. The big 4 banks all invest heavily in fossil fuels, with a combined total of $50 billion invested. In contrast, Bank Australia is a 100% customer-owned responsible bank committed to not investing a single cent in fossil fuels. This is why Sustainable Living Tasmania is proud to partner with them, and recommend them to you. Switch your mortgage to Bank Australia now.

Sustainable Living Festival

What is your vision of an AWESOME future? A future for you and your family, for Tasmania, and for the planet? Is it a healthier, happier you, or a warm home that doesn't cost the earth? Is it a safe, inclusive and resilient community? What about a restored and protected planet? Help your community explore how the future could be awesome and what we need to do to bring it about by getting involved in this year's Sustainable Living Festival as a volunteer, exhibitor, performer, or sponsor.
