Businesses Caring For Our Bays is a joint initiative between Connected to Port Phillip and the Bellarine Catchment Network’s Caring For Our Bays program. We are non-profit organisations that focus on caring for the environment as a community, and reconnecting locals with nature and the wonders of our bays and waterways.
Through the Businesses Caring For Our Bays program, we envision a Greater Melbourne and Geelong-wide community of respected local businesses acting as custodians for Port Phillip Bay (including Corio Bay), its waterways and the surrounding land and communities. Businesses Caring For Our Bays are recognised and promoted by the program, and enjoy greater customer respect and patronage as a result.
We work with local resource recovery and sustainability partners to equip businesses with the tools, knowledge, partnerships and support to take steps towards business practices that care for our bays. Our partners are respected within their industry and by their local community and have the expert knowledge and connections to help businesses take steps towards sustainability.
