Bredbo is a village on the Monaro Highway on the way to Cooma in New South Wales, Australia. The village is a tranquil place to live or take a pit stop. Bredbo has aboriginal origins, its name reflecting the famous river junction at the edge of the village, meaning ‘joining of waters’. Though, the villages history isn’t the only interesting thing to note.
The Cooma-Monaro Shire Council recently took an environmental approach in Bredbo, installing several recycled-plastic 100 mm x 100 mm bollards. Each bollard is equivalent to 2250 plastic bags, saving approximately 157, 500 plastic bags from landfill. Proving that even a small village with a large commitment can make a difference to our environmental future.
