It was a proud moment when a record number of environmentally friendly Frankston City programs were listed as finalists in this year’s Keep Victoria Beautiful Sustainable Cities 2019 Awards. This year, six projects were listed in the council category, and in the community award section five were listed.

Minie Vinnie’s recycling paper project at St Jude’s Primary School was recognised as a finalist in the community awards. The project involves a group of students collecting shredded paper, cardboard and paper scraps to be recycled weekly. St Jude’s science and sustainability co-ordinator, Helen Pepi, said the five star-rated sustainable school was “extremely thrilled” to be named as a finalist.
“Our students work hard to maintain our lovely native school grounds and take pride in trying to be sustainable in their everyday actions,” Helen said. “For every ton of paper, $110 goes to St Vincent de Paul. We have been able to reduce the costs of disposing of paper by about $1200 per year. This paper collection initiative is an action that helps our students to contribute and reach out to the needy people of Langwarrin and Frankston.”

Narelle Debenham’s Natured Kids program, which often features in Mornington Peninsula Magazine, was also listed in the community category for its ongoing environmental work. In addition, Kananook Creek Association was nominated for its Green Army Kananook Creek Restoration project, while Frankston Beach Association was listed for its foreshore rejuvenation initiatives.

Frankston City Council’s nominations include its Powering Up Local Communities project. This project includes 20 solar power systems and joined the online wildlife mapping tool and the Bay Friendly Business Project in the awards list. 

“This shows Frankston City is paving the way when it comes to sustainability and reducing our environmental impacts,” said Mayor Michael O’Reilly. “We need to continue on this path so that as a community we can make a difference.” 

Also in the council’s impressive list is the Frankston Dog Agility Park, the council’s popular Greening Our Future projects and the Frankston Regional Recycling and Recovery Centre. The Greening Our Future projects are particularly impressive because they actively educate residents on how to make a positive environmental difference. 

These awards focus on recognising positive actions taken by communities to boost their recycling and litter-prevention habits. An emphasis on protection of the environment, preserving heritage, initiating community action and leadership within environmental sustainability programs is what the awards acknowledge. 

The Sustainable Cities Awards ceremony will be held on September 6 at the Kensington Town Hall. For more information, visit www.kvb.org.au/sustainable-cities/
