Cycling in the name of sustainable living

ALMOST 12 months ago, four university students decided they would take a year off, and cycle their way around Australia in a bid to promote sustainable living.

And on Monday, that journey brought Tom Gray, Mereki Garnett, Anthony Garagounis and Matt Cougin to Coffs Harbour on the final leg of their journey – and Kororo Public School students got a chance to see what they'd been up to.

“Basically, we packed up last December and decided to cycle around Australia promoting sustainable living,” Anthony said.

The boys, known as MyPower, aren't raising money or asking for funds – instead, they are asking anyone who wishes to support them to commit to one of their 23 challenges per month.

The challenges include things like planting a native or food tree, reading a book on sustainable living, switching to compact fluorescent and getting recycled paper for the home or office.

“All these things make a big difference when you add them together,” Anthony said.

MyPower plan to finish their ride in Cronulla on December 7.
