Curing Affluenza - A great book about escaping our obsession with consumerism
$500.00

Get a signed copy of the new book by renowned economist and climate advocate Richard Denniss, from The Australia Institute!

Affluenza is that strange desire we feel to spend money we don’t have to buy things we don’t need to impress people we don’t know . . . A truly modern affliction, affluenza is endemic in Western societies, encouraged by those who profit from a culture of exploitation and waste. So how do we cure ourselves?

In this sparkling book of ideas, Richard Denniss shows we must distinguish between consumerism, the love of buying things, which is undeniably harmful to us and the planet, and materialism, the love of things, which can in fact be beneficial.

Say goodbye to your food waste with the Bokashi Bin
$1,000.00

Limited to the first 5 donors to give $1000, you’ll be honoured as a Gold Founding member on our website's Honour Roll.

You’ll also receive a revolutionary way to compost, thanks to eco-friendly business, Biome. The Bokashi Bin lets you dispose of all your waste - even dairy, meat and fish —with no smell and and no effort. Invented in Japan, this all-food recycling system uses effective microbes or "bokashi" — a Japanese word meaning "fermented organic matter" — to decompose food scraps and organic waste. The fermentation process does not produce odours, so it's a great way to do indoor composting when you have limited space or no outdoor area. You can keep the bucket under your sink or in your kitchen and you can use the bokashi juice as magic food for your herbs or house plants.

We'll also send you a handwritten thank you card and publish your name on our website's Honour Roll as a Major Supporter (unless you'd prefer to remain anonymous).
