Chinese Business Community Eco Night

Our earlier environment conservation activities were mainly about trees planting, clean up, recycling of batteries and aluminium cans.  But with the onset of severe drought in NSW in 2000, we began to focus on water saving initiatives.  Working with the NSW state government, we participated in the Water Ambassadors program.   Encouraged by the Environment Protection Award from the sate department in 2006, we applied for a government grant of $70,000.  
That allowed us to actively promote environment awareness to schools, communities, different organisations, and families.  These were recently expanded to cover business groups.  A Chinese Business Community Eco Night was held at the Sydney Hilton Hotel on 1 April 2011 with the assistance of the Sydney City Council.
