Mums love of recycling wins the premier's sustainability awards 2015

Featured Recycle, Reuse, Rehome St Kilda Mums Recycle, Reuse, Rehome

St Kilda Mums, Geelong Mums and Eureka Mums have won the Community Award and the Premier’s Recognition Award in the 2015 Premier's Sustainability Awards.

 The Recycle, Reuse, Rehome project involves over 900 volunteers in three regions collecting, recycling andstkildamumsrecycleproject re-homing babies and children's gear and creating a sustainable supply chain in the process.

Volunteers clean and repair all donated goods, and ensure items meet national safety requirements. These items are then donated to families in need by social workers from 250 social welfare agencies.

St Kilda Mums was established in February 2009 by five women wanting their own children’s prams and cots to be recycled and loved by other families. Six years later, the expanded network of St Kilda Mums, Geelong Mums and Eureka Mums has rehomed over 52,000 items and the need only continues to grow.

Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water Lisa Neville presented the St Kilda Mums with the award last night, and congratulated them on their hard work,

‘It’s great to see this organisation being recognised for their philanthropic work, and also for incorporating environmentally-friendly choices into their project goals.’

St Kilda Mums CEO Jessica Macpherson hopes the Award helps to raise awareness and supporters for the three organisations – St Kilda Mums, Geelong Mums and Eureka Mums. Upon winning the Award she said:

‘On behalf of everyone who volunteers with us and has donated to us, I’d like to thank the Premier and the sponsors for this Award.

‘We are thrilled to be recognised for the work we do, but more importantly, we need to be able to keep growing to meet the needs of Victorian families. The demand for our service only continues to grow.

stkildamumsrecycleproject2‘I hope everyone who hears about us winning the Award will consider donating to us, or telling their colleagues, friends and families about the work we do.’

Now in their 13th year, the Premier's Sustainability Awards continue to promote leadership and innovation in sustainability, and encourage a broader adoption of these practices by all Victorians.
