Blue Mountains Permaculture Institute shared The Big Fix's photo.

The Big Fix now has a t-shirt!

This NFP organisation, which regularly partners with the Blue Mountains Permaculture Institute, uses permaculture ethics and principles to help grow a collaborative, solutions-focused culture. It's working to 'Change the Story to Solutions' and is doing this by:

• providing a Daily Solutions Digest and a quarterly magazine that supports the work people are doing around the world and shares the stories we need to hear;

• by collaborating with other individuals and groups to lead change;

• and by providing communities, including young people, with opportunities for more civic engagement.

Some of its collaborations in the last 6 months have included the campaign to make Blackheath the first town in the world to choose to phase out plastic straws; the establishment of a Youth Cafe; a Solar Panel Community Forum; and the community partnership to establish the Blackheath Community Farm.

It's also thrilled to be working with Options Disability Support to produce its first organic cotton t-shirt which highlights that:

GIVING > TAKING
PRODUCING > CONSUMING
COLLABORATING > COMPETING
