Sell to help reduce our carbon footprint

Jarmila Peric provided a peek inside her garage ahead of the October 25 event.

Among items for sale at her West Wodonga house will be five bikes, five beds, two vinyl lounge chairs, a piano, an outdoor setting and an exercise bike.

“Some of these items have been sitting in the garage for some time,” Mrs Peric said.

“It’s time to give them a new home, somewhere they can be used for their intended purpose or even a new purpose.”

The event encourages individuals, households, schools, community groups and businesses to get involved as they resell, reuse and recycle items to reduce landfill waste.

Individuals can host the sale at their home or groups can organise a location.

“The concept is great,” Mrs Peric said.

“It raises awareness about what is already out there.

“It’s all part of that environmental move to recycle rather than throw out.”

The event is now in its fourth year.

Organisers are expecting up to 10,000 garage sales, with more than 1.5million items for sale across the country.
