To raise awareness of global warming Townsville rotary clubs challenged primary school students to collect points for their school by participating in activities such as turning off lights and appliances, and having shorter showers. The initiative won the Rotary Club of Thuringowa Central, a prize in the Australian Women’s Weekly Environmental Heroes competition which they donated towards an Exersite™ fitness station for the winners—Kirwan State School.

Fitness stations are not only a fun self-guided way to exercise, but as they are made from recycled plastic they are another great way to save the planet.
