On Sunday 12 September more than 60 homes in NSW, and 200 across Australia, opened their doors to the public as part of Sustainable House Day.
The Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water NSW (DECCW) sponsored this year's Sustainable House Day. The Day provides visitors with the opportunity to view inside houses that have been designed, built or fitted out with sustainability in mind and to find out how they can live more sustainably.
"Household sustainability is moving into the mainstream as people realise that they can really make a difference," said Lisa Corbyn, Director General of DECCW.
"Sustainable House Day helps show people how easy it is can be to make your home more sustainable, saving money and reducing our impact on the environment.
"It is also a great opportunity for us to showcase the many programs we run in NSW to help homes become more sustainable. An excellent example is the black balloon Save Power campaign," Ms Corbyn said.
If you would like to be involved in next year's event simply register your home or use the NABERS tool to rate how sustainable your home is.
