Bellingen EYE is a group of young people who are passionate about the environment. Our latest campaign is ‘Youth Against Plastic’, in which we aim to help Bellingen and the planet reduce our reliance on single use plastic. We are especially trying to ban plastic bags in NSW, and hopefully the whole of Australia.
We host bush skills and leadership camps to connect young people with the planet that we are working to protect. We believe this important issue affects the youth more than anyone, and so, it is essential that our voices are heard in this
We have a petition on change-org, With enough support this petition will provide us with a platform to send youth representatives to meet with Gladys Berejiklian to present our cause and convince her to take action.
Love Your Planet is committed to giving 20% of profits to causes that help maintain the health of the environment. For now and into the foreseeable future this will be donated to Youth Against Plastic to support their important environmental campaigns and leadership work in the community.
“We are proud to be involved with such an inspiring group of young people, and look forward to doing amazing things together,” says Nicholas Hannah, founder of Love My Planet.
Nicholas will be actively involved in mentoring Youth Against Plastic members in Bellingen, helping facilitate their ideas and initiatives.
We acknowledge the Gumbaynggirr people as the traditional custodians of the land on which we live, work, and learn. We pay our respects to all Elders past and present.
