Bunnings vouchers up for grabs as part of the Save the Crabs, Then eat Them campaign.
Residents who commit to holding off on the fertiliser till spring will go in the draw to win a $20 Bunnings voucher.
As part of the Save the Crabs, Then eat Them winter campaign, residents can show their commitment by displaying Crab Friendly Garden signs and bin stickers in their front yards.
“By pledging your commitment to hold off on the fertiliser till spring, not only are you supporting the Blue Swimmer Crab and his mates, you are also saving yourself time and money,” said Campaign Manager Sarah Molloy.
“Our lawns and gardens generally grow during the warmer months, making them unable to absorb nutrients in winter. Unfortunately, most of the fertiliser applied at this time ends up in our waterways.”
To go in the draw, residents need to post a ‘selfie’ on the Home River Ocean Facebook page, or tag @homeriverocean in their post. The signs and stickers are available at the Bunbury and Busselton Bunnings stores, as well as by contacting Sarah Molloy at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 9781 3112.
