Steve Vogel - Museum Interpretive Officer

'My family is installing solar water heating on our roof, which is partly subsidised by the Department of Environment and Climate Change.'

Clare Dorey - Teacher

Samantha Findlay - Student

'My family uses shower water savers and I grow my own herbs.'

Taylor Stacey - Student

'We reduced our energy use at home by installing fans instead of air-con, insulating our house, and using the clothesline instead of a dryer.'
