Renew 155 out now: e-waste recycling, electric garden tools buyers guide and more

In Renew 155, we enter the murky world of e-waste recycling; investigate the phenomenon of microfibre pollution in our oceans; hear from a Renew member who’s lived off-grid for 40 years (specifically, his experience with batteries); throw down the gauntlet to the great Aussie lawn; and make the case for mandatory disclosure of home energy efficiency ratings.

There’s also a bushfire planning specialist on how site planning can alleviate risk, two DIY projects—solar hot water and a solar space heater—along with a primer on EVetiquette, a breakdown of how EV range estimates works, plus much more.

Renew 155 is on sale now and available to purchase online and in newsagents. Or, you can always subscribe, and guarantee you’ll get every issue delivered to your door.
