Environmental Action & Conservation
The Total Environment Centre (TEC) believes in a fairer, greener world for all. We’ve worked with you for over 40 years to preserve the ecosystems that support living landscapes and healthy communities across Australia. With over 100 eco victories behind us, and more community-focused campaigns ahead, TEC has the roadmap for our journey into the future. Come with us!
Originally TEC was formed by the save the rainforests movement of the 1970s, which naturally segued into our work to preserve clean air and stop coastal sand mining. Today we still care about trees, supporting communities as they struggle to conserve precious parks and bushland. We also push for recycling infrastructure to protect our waterways and oceans from plastic pollutants, and sturdy legislation around native animals and plants to ensure food and water security for future Australians. WE advocate for renewable energy by encouraging innovation, a more flexible modern energy market, and incentivising government investment. These are the building blocks of a sustainable Australia.
Under the stewardship of our executive director Jeff Angel, TEC has remained a lean, independent and campaign-focused not-for-profit, with a reputation for calm measured policy advice, persistent campaigning and integrity, equal to none. Jeff is also the convenor of the Boomerang Alliance, one of Australia's most successful and popular recycling campaigns.
As NSW MP, Michael Daley, said in Parliament in mid 2016 – “You can’t buy Jeff Angel.”
In recent years TEC’s award winning educational communications projects – the documentary film Waste Not, the mobile Ocean Action POD, and the HotHouse event series - have expanded our traditional campaign activities across social media and other platforms into schools, universities, art galleries and public festivals.
Total Environment Centre is an incorporated non-profit association and a registered charity. We rely on donations to keep campaigning for a fairer, greener world.
