Every year, surprising the visitors of the Sustainable Living Festival with ecofriendly and innovative ideas, The New Joneses demonstrate the easy ways we can create a positive impact on the environment through our everyday choices.
This year it is the Tiny House that will be a live display of how lifestyle choices can change our world.
Does a big house define our happiness?
In Australia we have some of the biggest homes in the world. Since 1984 our living space has increased by almost 40%. A couple of years ago the average floor area in Australia was 241.1 m2*. In comparison, homes in Hong Kong are just 45 m2. People living in the happiest country in the world, Denmark, occupy almost half the floor space that Australians do**.
With their Tiny House The New Joneses illustrate the concept of filling the life, not the house while stepping into the worldwide trend of downsizing.
The creator of The New Joneses, Tamara DiMattina says it’s our own choices that can make difference.
"Showcasing the lifestyle choices from our bank to our dunny paper that can positively change our world, The New Joneses are thrilled to pop-up for the fifth year. We couldn’t do it without our partners and friends like Bank Australia. Come see how to have a Big Life with a Little Footprint."
The Tiny House will be at Federation Square from 11 to 25 February and it’s free and open to the public.
