The Victorian Green Renters’ Guide

Victorian Green Renters' Guide

The Victorian Green Renters’ Guide was put together by Environment Victoria with the help of the Tenants Union of Victoria. A small number of hard copies are available from the Environment Victoria office.

It includes sections on everything from heating to fridges to food, as well as information on government rebates, a checklist for people looking for a new place to rent, and an explanation of renting law in Victoria.

For more information, to give us your feedback, or to share your experiences of sustainable (and unsustainable) renting, visit the website.

For more sustainability living fact sheets and resources visit Sustainability Tips and Resources.
