Invest In Our Planet

Join Sussex on Friday 21st of April, 10am to 12pm to celebrate Earth Day 2023.

Held at 7 Prospect Street, Pascoe Vale.

This free event includes activities for young families with a visit from Bunnings Coburg, locally produced nature-inspired art, and a healthy morning tea.

This year’s Earth Day theme is “Invest In Our Planet” which highlights the importance of dedicating our time, resources, and energy to solving climate change and other environmental issues. Investing in our planet is necessary to protect it and the best way to pave a path towards a prosperous future.

When we Invest In Our Planet together, we are supporting healthy, happy, and wealthy communities worldwide.

Every Day is Earth Day
