Great cycles of bike-rescuing, climate action and an eco-egg


We kick off the 275th Sustainable Hour with yet another of the now world-famous Geelong Roars, which we recorded on Friday at 11:59am in front of Geelong City Hall. Video below.

Our guest in the studio is Tom Allen from Good Cycles.

On the phone, we talk with Zelly Been – the 14-year-old “Uber Youth Climate Action Organiser” from Adelaide.

Our series Sustainable People is now podcasting from Denmark, because Lene Outzen Foghsgaard has moved back to her home country. This time it is about a little laundry egg, called Ecoegg, that you can use for 720 washes. You can also get an egg that lasts for 210 washes. This alternative to washing powder is quite a clever invention, because it is good for the environment, you save three years of packaging, and it doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals, bleaches or ammonias, that normal detergents often does. On top of that, it saves you money: only about $50-60 for three years of washing clothes. And of course it is produced out of 100% recyclable materials.

We play a clip with Sir David Attenborough, who the Australian parliamentarian Malcolm Roberts has stated he intends to “fight”, and a musical song about the climate emergency. Video below.

Climate emergency expressed in musical
#Emergency is based on recent protests led by teenagers demanding government action towards the climate emergency. The song is a live performance that’s part of the new musical, #OurStory. The musical was conceptualised, written and rehearsed over a six day period and depicts the lives of teenagers in the modern day. Based entirely on true stories told by the cast, look out for more songs and updates about the show. More info on www.spiritypc.co.uk/new-musical-workshop

Acknowledgement

We at The Sustainable Hour would like to pay our respect to the traditional custodians of the land on which we are broadcasting, the Wathaurong People, and pay our respect to their elders, past, present and future.

The traditional owners lived in harmony with the environment and with the climate for hundreds of generations. It is not clear – yet – that as European settlers we have demonstrated that we can live in harmony for hundreds of generations, but it is clear that we can learn from the indigenous, traditional owners of this land.

When we talk about the future, it means extending our respect to those children not yet born, the generations of the future – remembering the old saying that…



The decisions currently being made around Australia to ignore climate change are being made by those who won’t be around by the time the worst effects hit home. How utterly disgusting, disrespectful and unfair is that?
