Charla: RECICLAJE Y MEDIO AMBIENTE
El Lunes 3 de Julio 2017 en 33F Boussole Road, Daceyville NSW 2032 de 11 am. a 1 pm.
Expositora: HELGA MORAGA/Ingeniero Medio Ambiental, patrocinado por el Consejo de Randwick.
El reciclaje es la reutilización de partes o de todos los materiales que componían un producto para producir el mismo u otro producto distinto. De esta manera se reducen los residuos. No todos los productos y materiales pueden ser reciclados, por lo que estos elementos si son basura, pero gran parte de los materiales que hoy se tiran o se entierran pueden ser reincorporados a la cadena productiva y convertirse en un nuevo producto.                                                                                                           
Uno de los grandes problemas que la mayoría de los países y ciudades tienen es la acumulación de residuos sólidos urbanos, debido a que las pautas de consumo y la cultura de lo descartable de estas últimas décadas, de usar un producto por corto tiempo y luego desecharlo provoco un exponencial crecimiento de residuos. Como consecuencias en el mundo se generan millones de toneladas de residuos. Teniendo opciones para gestionarla como incinerarla, enviarlas a los rellenos sanitarios pero estos métodos son altamente contaminantes y no sostenibles en el tiempo. Por lo que la mejor opción es el reciclaje de los materiales cuando sus características lo permite.

Diversión en la nieve en los Jardines de Hunter Valley


Get ready for a Winter Wonderland that is jammed-packed this year when Hunter Valley Gardens ‘Snow Time in the Garden’ returns for 2017.

Hunter Valley Gardens has pulled out all the stops this year, adding more rides and entertainment than ever before to this incredible winter event.
The one of a kind destination will transform into a glittering winter fair from Saturday June 24th until Sunday July 16th, with new activities and something for everyone to enjoy at any age. The icey festivities will be open every day for three weeks, and are an easy two-hour drive from Sydney CBD.

ACTIVITIES:
ICE SKATING RINK
Kick off your Snow Time fun with a spin around the much-loved Snow Time Ice Skating Rink. Skating sessions will run for 20 minutes and can fit up to 200 skaters at any time. With sessions starting at 10.00am every day, collect your session ticket, grab your skates and helmet and make sure you don’t miss out!

SNOW TIME FAIR RIDES
Brand new to Hunter Valley Gardens, these incredible additions will bring a spectacular Carnivale vibe to Snow Time in the Garden. With a 25m Ferris Wheel, 12m-long Swing Chairs and traditional-style Carousel, little ones and kids at heart are sure to get a thrill from these Italian-made beauties. Some height restrictions apply: children must be over 110cm tall to ride the Swing Chair, with kids over 120cm able to fly solo, and those 110-120cm riding safe alongside an accompanying adult.

SNOW TIME PLAY ZONE
Get ready to have Frozen’s ‘Do You Want To Build A Snowman?’ stuck in your head all day – the ever-popular snow play area is back, with adorable snowman accessories galore. With two equally large play areas, there’s plenty of room for Snowmen, Snow Angels, or anything else that takes your fancy.

INFLATABLES
Young ones of all sizes can enjoy unlimited bouncing, frolicking and racing on these giant Jumping Castles and Obstacle Courses, this year seeing two separate Inflatable zone areas to accommodate toddlers and big kids alike. With 6 Inflatables in total, there will be more than enough bouncing time to go around.

REAL ICE TOBOGGAN
Go speeding down the Ice Toboggan on your snow tube as many times as you like! At a breathtaking 40 metres long, it’ll be sure to get your blood pumping.

HUNTER VALLEY GARDENS SUPER SLIDE
After its incredibly popular induction into last year’s Snow Time attractions, the HVG Super Slide is here to stay! This thrilling ride will continue to light up Hunter Valley Gardens during Snow Time and throughout the year. Standing at a huge 12 metres high and 35 metres long, it’s time to grab a giant slide mat and zip down the rainbow at full speed. Swing Chair height restrictions apply.

The family fun doesn’t stop here. Other activities throughout the event include Face Painting, Snow Ball Challenge and Arcade Alley. The incredible live Ice Sculpting by Kenji Ogawa will also be wowing crowds on weekends.

Ethica Accessories fundraising trivia


In support of women in Peru, Ethica accessories invites you to a FUNdraising trivia night. This general knowledge trivia night is designed to amuse and entertain while supporting our livelihood programs in Peru.

Women in Peru are less likely to have an education or ways of earning an income, especially in poor marginalized areas where we work.

With Ethica women have been given the opportunity to learn a skill and receive a fair income for the beautiful range of products they make. The range includes alpaca ponchos, beanies and gloves, baby blankets, bags and homewares.

Together with Mary MacKillop International this project gives them different skills that will give the women better opportunities in life; with the income they can get better food for their families, materials for school or medicine. We are working to give them a hand up not a hand out.

We look forward to seeing you on:
Wednesday June 28 – 7 for 7:30 start
Isabel Menton Theatre, 11 Mount Street, North Sydney


Entry $50 includes wine and nibbles.
