Well tonight was the big night where local businesses and people are recognised at the Green Lifestyle Awards. In fact, as you read this, the event has finished and all the winners have been announced.
As you may remember, I was nominated by many readers way back in May, and for that I cannot thank you enough. The response from you all was simply amazing.
Guess what? I won!
Yes folks, yours truly won the "Local Green Hero" category, and came runner up in the "Online Eco Info Site" category. I am chuffed to bits, and it is all because of you. I am humbled.
So here is my virtual acceptance speech, which I believe was shown at the Green Lifestyle Awards ceremony in Sydney. I produced this video because I chose not to travel to due to it my self imposed carbon budget, which would have been blown away by two flights. I believe that if you talk the talk, you must walk the walk. I strongly stand by my values and actions.
There you have it. A big moment in my life and that of this blog. The full details of all the winners and runners up will be announced in the next issue (Nov/Dec) of Green Lifestyle magazine. Watch for it at newsagents around the 18th of October for those who live in Australia.
For those new to the blog, and want to learn about my sustainable living journey, you can download a free copy of my first eBook "The Greening of Gavin - My First Year of Living Sustainably" at my eBookstore page. Or you could check out my blog archive located on the right hand sidebar and start from the very first post and work your way back.
So, onwards and upwards my friends. Stay tuned for more Greening of Gavin. There is lots of life in this blog and I.
