A small change can make a big difference

Switch your thinking is the Shire’s award winning sustainability initiative that aims to reduce regional greenhouse emissions and inspire community action. To do this we partner with neighboring Councils, local businesses, schools and community groups, to help the residents to live and work in a way that meets their needs without jeopardising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Visit to get advice, find community events, grab discounts on sustainable products and learn what you can do to be more sustainable in your home, business, school or community.  

Claim your discount now!

Rewards for residents supports you to make your home more sustainable. We partner with local businesses to offer you discounts on products that will help you cut waste and reduce energy and water use. Visit to claim discounts on rain water tanks, solar energy and battery storage, pool blankets, compost bins, worm farms and more.

Want save energy at home but not sure where to start?

Switch your thinking delivers free monthly energy efficiency tips via SMS text message. The tips will help you take control of your energy use and electricity bill.
