The Sustainable Living Guide is a digital content and software product comprising actions and programs that encourage and support sustainability and green living. The Sustainable Living Guide can be seamlessly integrated into your organisations website, or provided as a separate hosted and branded web portal, as part your organisations environment and sustainability communications and education program.

The Sustainable Living Guide consists of the following core elements:

  • Professionally researched, written and updated content.

    The Sustainable Living Guide comprises 65+ detailed ‘actions’ that people can take in their lives to reduce their impact on the environment, live more sustainably and save money (see list in side column). The actions are customised and evolved to reflect the policies, targets and programs of our clients.

  • User-centric information architecture and presentation.

    The Sustainable Living Guide presents its content (text and images) and online tools in a series of professionally design and user friendly templates with simple and intuitive navigation. The 'look and feel' of these templates can be ‘styled and branded’ to appear as a seamless part of your organisation’s existing web presence.
