Some inspiring news from 2014!

We just love hearing stories from students that are just bursting to make a difference and tell others why they should do all they can to look after our beautiful planet.



We get so much joy when we receive letters in the post, or emails and photos of what the Green Lane Diary is inspiring kids to do within their own communities.


Natalie from Ravenswood School for Girls wrote to us and said "At school we have a nude food program going on Tuesday, Wendsday and Thursdy. I have done al the actions on the action tracker and more. Last year l made a movie about saving the planet. It was about not throwing rubbish in the ocean because it can make our sea life really sick. I really enjoy gardening and planting vegies and fruits. My favourite part of growing plants is harvesting them. I love your website it is really fun."

An email we received from a treasured teacher in a remote part of the Northern Territory was no exception! The kids in this school are just itching to really make an impact in their town and we just want to shout out a big THANK YOU to the wonderful Grade 3 students at Alyangula Area School in Groote Eylandt, Northern Territory.


One of the students, Lily organised for aluminium pull tops on cans to be collected so that they could be sent to Thailand where they can be reycled and made into artificial limbs for those that have been severly injured by land mines. How incredible is that!


But wait, theres more inspiration, Jackson lent a hand in greening the island by helping get healthy gardens going at a friends new place, and we agree gardening is fun and its not that tricky! Bronte got the whole town involved with a big clean up. Arya, Reeve and Abby also were very innovative in donating old books and writing to council for more water bubblers to elliviate the need for plastic!


Fantastic job guys!
