Make an Impact Hero - David Yuill, Kwinana Refinery
 
David said he and his family were trying to reduce the amount of waste they generated by reducing their use of power, water and fuel consumption.
 
“Our goal is to become as energy and water efficient as we can,” he said.
 
Some of the steps the Yuill family have taken include:
• Converting the family cars to LPG – reducing carbon by around 40%; • Installing solar power panels on the house roof – reducing electricity use by 30%;
• Installing a rain water tank, converting our garden to drought tolerant plants and using white quartz stone mulch for soil temperature and moisture control.
 
“We also plan to reduce transport carbon impact by moving to smaller cars powered by LPG or electric and switching to use recyclable products and packaging to reduce landfill waste.”
