GOOD HOOD WINNERS ANNOUNCED
Good Hood winners announced and many call South Sydney their home!
Have you seen The Good Hood site recently? Over the last month it has been sprouting stacks of posts showing your great green ideas and initiatives. There’s the big and the small, the simple and the inventive – but let’s be honest, we’re just chuffed to see how much Good there is in our local neighbourhood!
But, without further ado, let’s see the top of the crop; those clever cookies who posted their own creative approach to each of our three categories.
Reuse & Recycle:
Winner: Joshua’s recycled light – Zetland
There was loads of upcycling shared through The Good Hood – so many success stories of people finding gems and updating them rather than buying new. Josh stepped it up and mixed this city landscape cut-out, found in his local apartment-block bin room, with a little bit of elbow grease to create a new light for his living room. We want one of our own!
Josh won a beautiful TV chair from clothfabric – it will go well with your light, Josh!
Honourable mentions go to:
Ed’s swap room – Redfern
Great one, Ed! Everyone’s got that pile of books sitting in the cupboard ready to chuck out. But what if Sue in 2B is looking for a good read? Save another purchase and create one of these swapping areas in your apartment block. You can leave books, working appliances, small furniture – the sky’s the limit. Just discuss with your strata or building group first.
Made & Grown:
Winner: Gavin’s solar-powered balcony garden
There was such a great group of gardens shared on The Good Hood – backyard, balcony, community, you name it. But we love Gavin’s ingenious use of solar to help his little balcony garden along when it’s out of the sun.
Gavin and 19 of his mates get to go and eat some amazing food at Tablefor20 next month. We hope he gets some inspiration for how to use the produce from his balcony garden once they’ve grown a little bigger.
Green & Go
Winner: Gual’s bike-friendly workplace – Redfern
Local bike riders had a great representation on our map – but Gual’s entry caught our eye. His workplace dedicates an area for all the cyclists to store their bikes at the office. A little encouragement will go a long way to get more people using alternate transport, so well done Holler and Gual!
To help him out on distances that are a little too far for the trusty two-wheeler, Gual gets $1,000 worth of car share from GoGet.
YashLord riding in style – Sydney
This guy looks like he’s having lots of fun getting around the city on two wheels. After his post we’re not sure what his vanity levels will do after being called out as an honourable mention, but we’re sure he’ll manage.
Thanks to our great partners at clothfabric, Tablefor20 and GoGet for their fabulous prizes.
Thanks to all who entered, the competition is now over, but you can still pin your Good to the Hood and see what others are up to. Thanks for being part of the neighbourhood.
