Have you met our sustainability mascot, Les Waste? He loves making public appearances around the City of Stirling to promote sustainability. Find out more about Les Waste, including photographs of his recent appearances.
The City of Stirling is proud to support, promote and encourage sustainability in our operations and in the community.
To help spread the message of sustainability in a fun and entertaining way, our marketing team created a sustainability mascot—Les Waste!
Les Waste’s family tree and heritage
Les was born in February 2010. His mother was 60% recycled paper from post-consumer waste, and his father was 40% plantation-certified fibre.
The marketing team started with a prototype first, but once it was realised how well Les could help promote a sustainable lifestyle, a more permanent mascot was designed.
Les Waste’s passions and hobbies
Les has evolved since then, and now represents more than just saving paper in the office. He loves to spend time spreading the message of how people can live more sustainably.
This includes promoting:
• Public transport
• Eating healthy food
• Saving energy
Where can I see Les Waste?
Keep your eyes peeled for City of Stirling promotional materials, including Stirling Scoop - our fortnightly newspaper segment, Stirling Scene - our community newsletter, and many more!
In July 2010, Les's first formal duty for the City was at Karrinyup Shopping Centre's Environment Week where he met with shoppers to help promote the benefits of living a sustainable lifestyle.
If you were at the Legends Match in October 2010, you would have seen Les taking part in The Grand Mascot Race!
A true sustainability champion!
