A COOPERATIVE TO HELP LOW INCOME FAMILIES

Posted by Pam French on Fri 18 December 2015

The Earthworker Cooperative is launching the "Give Tanks" campaigna crowdfund to get high-quality solar hot water systems into low-income housing. The recently established Eureka’s Future Workers’ Cooperative, Australia's first worker-owned manufacturing cooperative, is producing the solar hot water tanks that will go into the low-income houses.

Earthworker has partnered with a number of social housing organisations, including Aboriginal Housing Victoria and Common Equity Housing NSW, to install the systems into low-income households. By donating to the crowdfund you will help create dignified, green jobs in Australian manufacturing, reduce bills for low-income earners, and be part of a collective effort to ensure a safe climate.

Help ensure that renewable energy technology is accessible to those that need it most, and build the cooperative economy in the process!

There's three ways to support this:

  1. Visit the crowdfund page. Take two minutes to consider the campaign.
  2. Donate! You can also donate on behalf of a loved one and give them a gift card.
  3. Promote the campaign to your members/networks/friends/workplace etc. You can email them the link to the crowdfund page, invite people to the crowdfund page on Facebook or just talk to people about it. Every bit counts.

Please get in touch with any questions: contact@earthworkercooperative.com.au
