2020 Eco Town Ambassador

Wombat

In 2017 Wombat appeared on popular reality TV show The Block with the intention of using this opportunity to share his story and show people how to live a more sustainable life. Wombat is here to help people understand and navigate the changes we can make to protect this planet. He aims to show people how to make better choices with the products they purchase and use, while understanding where it came from and where it will end up.
