Nominations are open for the City of Logan’s Logan Eco Awards, which highlight residents who are helping to create a more environmentally-friendly city.
Environment Chair, Deputy Mayor Jon Raven, urged eco heroes to apply.
“Not all heroes wear capes, which is why it’s important we celebrate our environmental champions,” Cr Raven said.
“We know our community loves natural areas and wildlife. The work that these amazing people do to protect and enhance our city’s environment benefits everyone in Logan.”
The main award is Eco Champion. It is judged on a criteria that includes those who have helped the natural environment in rescuing injured animals, improving eco-efficiency in their home or restoring and protecting bushland on their property or on Council land.
A Junior Eco Champion tag will go to a school student who has led or joined environmental activities at school or in a community group or outside the classroom.
Businesses which have reduced energy consumption or waste output, educated staff about environmental issues, or demonstrated environmental initiative can bid for the Eco Business award.
Not-for-profit organisations can enter the Eco Organisation section, awarded to a group that is reducing its environmental footprint, conducting student or community environmental education activities, or undertaking environmental advocacy.
Award nominations close on Friday, April 22.
