Teamwork makes many things possible. As a young environmentalist, 9-year-old Tallulah from Balnarring Primary School in Victoria has brought her school community together to create a better future.
Bringing her school together in a revegetation day, Tallulah and her school environmental club planted over 100 trees for a local parkland. In bringing her school peers together, Tallulah began a journey of rebuilding homes for local wildlife.
Knowing the power of a community, Tallulah also encouraged her school to up their recycling game.
“Our school participated in TreadLightly, a program which collected unwanted shoes for recycling,” says Tallulah. “Our community collected 798 pairs of shoes and won the national prize!”
Recycling can be tricky if the bins aren’t there, so Tallulah worked with her environmental club to create a special bag. Collecting bread tags, pens, textas, milk bottle lids and blister packs, Tallulah’s enthusiasm continues to lead her community to a greener place.
