The not-for-profit organisation, Arts Project Australia, provides an inner city studio and gallery to nurture and promote artists with an intellectual disability. Owning the building makes environment actions even more compelling, so when an audit helped clarify priorities, the organisation got started. It installed double-glazed and operable windows, replaced halogens with light emitting diodes (LEDs), and switched power companies. Their first bill after the changes was $1200 less than usual.
