Healthier Neighbourhoods - A Community Project to reduce Carbon Footprint

Dear Friend,

My name is Inderjeet Singh Virdi and I am your neighbour in Kellyville NSW 2155. I work full time. I have often thought about contributing to a healthier and cleaner environment for the future of our children and the next generations. However, I never got a chance to focus on and actively contribute to this area due to hectic lifestyle.

To create a safer, healthier environment always seems like somebody else’s problem (e.g. governments, councils, business and environmental activists). We all live busy lives and it seems days, weeks and months fly past without us taking any action at home to reduce waste and our carbon footprint.

As a result I have initiated a community project and I would like to invite you to be part of this programme which aims:

1. To create greater awareness about carbon footprints created through our daily activities
2. To help us measure the impact of what we do on our environment
3. To help you to choose ways to reduce your own carbon footprints
4. To acknowledge your achievements and celebrate with your family and neighbours

I am reaching out with this message to households in the Hills Council area.

If you want to make a difference to the environment for our children and future generations, I am keen to talk to you. Together we can promote better practices in households throughout our neighbourhoods and reduce our carbon footprint through learning from each other.

Being a community project, it is important that people engage in this initiative on their own and contribute as much as or as little as they can. Every bit counts….Together we can make a huge difference. If you can’t participate in this programme directly, please also let me know and you can still benefit through shared learnings from other participants and thus promote the cause.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully

Inderjeet Singh Virdi
