2011- What We Did
SUPPORTING: EARTH HOUR 2011 MARCH 26TH
Back To Nature switched its lights off in support of Earth Hour 2011.
"Earth hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned off their lights for one hour to take a stand against climate change. Only one year later and Earth hour had become a global sustainablility movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries participating." www.earthhour.org/about
SUPPORTING: Mental Illness Fellowship South Australia: RED FACES CHARITY EVENT 2011 MAY 7th
Thank you for your sponsorship of the Red Faces 2011 event held on 7 May 2011 at the Arkaba Hotel.
The evening was a great success and I am pleased to announce that we raised in excess of $20,000.00 for MIFSA!
This would not have been possible without your generous and vital contribution.
MIFSA services and programs provide education, training and support, through rehabilitation and recovery-based programs and respite to fulfil MIFSA's vision that 'every person with mental illness is able to make a valued contribution to society without stigma or discrimination' and its mission which includes 'reaching people we haven't reached before.' MFSA has asked that I pass on their thanks and well wishes.
Thank you once again for your kind support for Red Faces 2011.

SUPPORTING: CANCER COUNCIL WALK TO WORK DAY. September 16th 2011
Now in its 13th year, Cancer Council Walk to Work Day on Friday 16 September, 2011 encourages organisations to support their employees and build regular walking into their daily routine.
Did you know that people who walk often are more productive and are less likely to be absent or take sick-leave? Regular walking can also help relieve feelings of depression or anxiety. And it improves our environment by reducing car dependency.
So, step into Spring, put your feet first and register at walk.com.au to take part in
Cancer Council Walk to Work Day.
BACK TO NATURE AUSTRALIA HAS! and we have also donated $500 to the Cancer Council
It's so easy to participate:
If you can't walk all the way, use public transport and get off the bus, train, tram or ferry a few stops early and walk the rest of your journey
If you must drive, leave the car at least a kilometre from your destination and walk the rest of the way.
Take a half-hour walk at lunchtime and where possible, use the stairs.
If you are required to sit a lot at work, get up and walk around at least once every hour.
