Pyrmont is a great place to live. It is a vibrant and friendly community, within short walking distance of the city. There is an abundance of green parks, expansive harbour views, more than 15kms of harbour walks, as well as great restaurants, cafes, bars, arts, funky entertainment spaces
We have developed PyrmontVillage.com.au in order to provide practical information about Pyrmont which would be of interest to the to both the resident as well as the non resident.
An important part of the PyrmontVillage.com.au, is our vision about urban communities and their roles in practical sustainability. An expert definition we love is the one given by the Sustainability Leadership Institute, and they go on to say that:
“Sustainability can be described as each of us doing our part to build the kind of world—economically, environmentally and socially—that we want to live in, and one that we want our children and grandchildren to inherit. It means becoming aware of all interconnections—visible and invisible—in which our day-to-day choices affect the intricate balance of social, economic and ecological systems.”
While we are not radical environmentalists, we do believe though in the need to make conscious decisions about how we live and what we buy in order to reduce our impact on the environment.
Through PyrmontVillage.com.au our aim is to bring you practical suggestions as to how you, as an urban village resident, can live in a more sustainable manner. The importance of ethical consumerism and voting with your dollar to support local business, fairtrade, organic and other eco-friendly products is not to be underscored. We hope to suggest ways in which you can give back to the community through volunteering as well as providing, practical tips on reducing your footprint on the environment.
Please note that we are not perfect and do not as such place ourselves forward as poster children for this rapidly growing ethical consumer revolution. We are bound to make mistakes, please feel very free to let us know, and together we will evolve.
Our Commitment to Ethical Consumerism and Fairtrade
We support Fairtrade wholeheartedly and offer free advertising and editorial support to those small businesses who are actively participating in the Fairtrade movement. Here is a slice of some of the fairtrade businesses that we have helped in some little way. So if you are a small fairtrade business, We Will NOT Charge you for advertising on our site, and indeed will help you out in a practical manner. We can help with search engine optimisation (SEO) strategies, web hosting and web development. We do this already and it’s fun! The interesting people that we have met through this process has enriched our lives quite considerably. Fair Trade Rocks.
Pyrmont Village’s Commitment to the Arts
Just like Fairtrade, we also encourage contributions from the Arts community here in Sydney. We Will NOT Charge you for advertising on our site, and indeed will help you out in a practical manner. We can help with search engine optimisation (SEO) strategies, web hosting and web development. At the very least we can give you an experienced perspective on what works and what does not. There are some crazy artists in Sydney… Hola Enrique…
We would really appreciate your comments and feedback and, of course, if you would like to contribute photos, articles, videos and more we would love to hear from you.
