ECO TOWN AMBASSADOR - WOMBAT

Wombat is a 42-year-old self-confessed sustainability nut who lives on the South Coast of New South Wales.

The idea was to show people that it was possible to live like this; and encourage others to do the same. But he soon realised this wasn’t realistic for most people and he needed to find something everyone could do, something that was relatively easy and accessible...
