While we were at the Sustainable Illawarra Super Challenge launch last night, Ally (one of the Super Challenge coordinators) and her partner Richard were simultaneously appearing on Triple J’s Hack Half Hour on ABC2.
The topic of the show was Waste. You can find the episode [here](http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/hackhalfhour/default.htm) (it’s episode 7, 3 Nov 2008), or download the mp4 directly [here](http://mpegmedia.abc.net.au/triplej/tv/hackhh_ep7_waste.mp4). Note: the ABC rocks for making their shows available on their web site!
It was an interesting group discussion on the topic of waste, and care for the environment generally. [Ally and Richard’s house](http://www.happyearth.com.au/) was featured as an example of people living sustainably within modern society.
I found the ‘anti’ guy annoying. His whole argument seemed to be that he couldn’t be bothered doing anything, one person can’t make any difference, and the government or business or someone should do something about it instead of him. It made the discussion a bit lopsided, having one of the positions so weak.
Still, the overall message was quite positive, and it emphasised the point that small changes made by a lot of people can have a large cumulative effect on the problems we face.
