Congratulations  to Victoria’s Casey City Council for picking up the trophy for ‘Excellence in Green Purchasing’ at the 2009 ECO-Buy Awards.

Held at the National Gallery of Victoria on May 20, the ceremony aimed to acknowledge local governments and businesses for their green purchasing programs. The City of Casey has been leading by example for nearly a decade, purchasing more than 10,000 bollards, as well as signage, furniture and Enduroplank™ decking.

The council’s commitment to saving the environment by choosing non-timber alternatives is an inspiration, and the award is well deserved.
