WHAT IF YOU COULD TAKE THE PROBLEM OF PLASTIC POLLUTION AND USE IT TO HELP SOLVE THE HOUSING SHORTAGE IN REMOTE ABORIGINAL COMMUNITIES WITHIN AUSTRALIA?



Communities like Jilkminggan in the Northern Territory, where housing is neglected. People here currently live in third world conditions without proper access to water, power and sanitation in Australia. These growing communities are full of vibrant people wanting the chance to improve their livelihoods, with children who deserve the same choices and opportunities as all Australian children do.



We’re working together with the elders of Jilkminggan NT, to raise $500000 FROM PEOPLE DECIDING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Every cent will be used to build housing from recycled plastics for the whole community.



Help make a difference today. This single act of kindness can change a person’s life forever.

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO CROWD FUND AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO THE LIVES OF THE JILKMINGGAN COMMUNITY HELP US REACH OUR TARGET AND DONATE VIA OUR CHUFFED CAMPAIGN

CREATIVE CHALLENGE



We’ve all seen plastic bottles in our creeks, bays and harbours, or uncovered a grocery bag in the sand at the beach. They’re adding up to one big problem for our seas. Our ocean is becoming a plastic soup and our sea life is choking on the contents.

 

Plastic never goes away. Every piece of plastic you and I have ever used is still around today.

 

  • 90% of marine debris found on Australian beaches is plastic (bottles, caps and straws)

  • Australians buy 600 million litres of bottled water each year

  • We use 10 million plastic bags per day (that's 3.9 billion plastic bags per year).

 

With this global problem in mind we can turn our plastic problem around.

THE FUTURE WE CAN CREATE TOGETHER



Support by donating and sending this to 10 people you know. Help us help Aboriginal communities like Jilkminggan build sustainable housing using plastic pollution.

 

Working with The Traditional Owners and Elders of Jilkminggan we’ve teamed up with the award-winning Nev House to design and build high quality, sustainable housing.

 

This 'Sustainable Community Development' model will mean:

  • Local labour is employed

  • On the job training is provided

  • Sense of ownership and pride instilled
