We're currently hitting the pavement to secure new locations across Melbourne - 7 new locations will be announced in the coming weeks.
That's right - thanks to your contributions, on 18 February we purchased a further 31 ACCUs from CO2 Australia representing another 31 tonnes of CO2 pollution removed from our skies. ACCUs were generated from the 'CO2 Australia Better Climate Project', coming from mallee plantings integrated into farms across NSW in accordance with the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) (Reforestation by Environmental or Mallee Plantings - FullCAM) Methodology Determination 2014 method (Links to these projects will be provided soon). We'd like to thank CO2 Australia for their help in acquiring these credits, and we'd like to thank Auction Rooms, Wild Life Bakery, Hippo Bottle & Bar, Willows & Wine and Brunswick green for their continuing support in hosting our donation systems - for hosting our bins!!
Carbon Bins was awarded $9,600 by National Australia Bank as part of the coveted NAB Community Grant initiative. This injection of funds will permit carbon bins to grow their operation and purchase a further 15 electronic donation devices and install them in a further 15 locations around Melbourne. This means more people will be able to bin CO2 pollution.
Thanks to your contributions, on September 8 we purchased 65 carbon credits (ACCUs), representing the removal of 65 tonnes of CO2 removed form our skies. The ACCUs were generated as part of the CO2 Australia Better Climate Project which is made up of mallee plantings integrated into farms across NSW in accordance with the Carbon Farming Initiative (Reforestation by Environmental or Mallee Plantings - FullCAM) Methodology Determination 2014 method. Full details of the project can be found here.
