8th Birthday Celebrations

25/11/2015 1:04 PM

2015 marks the eighth birthday of 1 Degree. To celebrate, 1 Degree held national competitions, ran educational birthday events and entered into new partnerships to offer staff discounts on electric cars and solar products.

The school holiday event featured all things ‘oceans’ themed: face painting, crafts, a screening of DisneyEarth’s film ‘Oceans’ and educational activities for staff and their families. The birthday celebration event included a talk by Cool Australia’s Jason Kimberley and a lunch to thank 1 Degree champions.

The staff offers included a heavily discounted 12 month lease on a Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle. The partnerships were launched at a major event with Mitsubishi Motors Australia’s CEO, aimed at showing the advances in technology that make being environmental sustainable even easier.
