Ethical Paper Pledge; Deakin University

  Deakin University currently uses Reflex paper, manufactured by Australian Paper, who is the largest domestic buyer of woodchips from Victoria's native forests. 80% of the wood that is removed from native forests is used to make paper. Logging has lead to species decline (such as the Leadbeater's possum above), degraded water catchments and depleted carbon sinks contributing to climate change. Australian Paper has stated that plantation timber could easily satisfy domestic paper needs, deeming

A PIECE OF THE JIGSAW IS MISSING! Where do you think Geelong and The Bellarine fits within Tourism Victoria’s jigsaw?  The state government tourism authority tells us we must be part of the Great Ocean Road, that it will not support an independent Geelong and The Bellarine Regional Tourism Board. Right now, the State Government is contributing ZERO dollars to the regional tourism body charged with the development and promotion of tourism in the Greater Geelong region. A lengthy process of tour

Introducing more animal and dog laws in WA

The public is not blind sided by the poor outcomes individuals are receiving as a result of abusing, mistreating or killing animals. Whether these animals are endangered (farm animals or domestic pets), we have the media to prove that outcomes made in our state of WA in relation to animal abuse is poor. Offenders don't get caught so often unfortunately but the ones that do get a slap on the wrist. I belive in our human hearts we care about our furry friends and I believe there is more than enou

Harsher sentencing for violent crimes and pedofiles

Keep 19 Kids and Counting on TLC!

Let's petition TLC to keep the show 19 Kids and Counting on! There's a petition going around trying to get this amazing show cancelled. This family has brought inspiration to so many people including myself. With all of the disfunctional shows on TV and yes I am guilty of watching them, this show is about an amazing family that inspires me to be the best mother and wife that I can be.
