State of Sustainability Allstars: Meet Boomer
Meet Boomer: 34 years old; electrician; will eat organic if the dirt is washed off, even chow down on a veggie burger if it has barbeque sauce on it. Loves AFL footy (Bulldogs superfan), his dog (Turtle) and solar-powered beats; lives in Melbourne’s outer western suburb of Werribee; and - despite the tats and tough exterior - cares about the planet. Boomer is also looking for love … ladies.
Surprising Fact: Boomer is a guerrilla knitter, regularly ‘yarn bombing’ neighbourhood landmarks, and always managing to slip away on his stealth scooter before getting sprung.
Boomer Says: ‘Recycle or die.’
Boomer’s 2013 Festival event picks: The Festival team asked Boomer to share his top event picks for the 2013 Festival. Here’s his hit list, along with why he chose them:
