The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2019-06-17T23:36:19Z 15 minute coffee breaks are costing Australian businesses 2019-06-17T23:36:19Z 15-minute-coffee-breaks-are-costing-australian-businesses How much are coffee breaks costing your business? Media Release - 18 June 2019 JURA Australia reveals innocent 15 minute coffee breaks are costing Australian businesses much more money and time than they may realise. On average, according to JURA’s ‘Best Coffee Machines For Office’ Calculators, coffee breaks are costing businesses with 10 employees over $10,000 and 270 hours in lost time every year. Investing in a JURA coffee machine for your office space will increase productivity as it will minimise trips outside the office and is proven to boost employee morale. George Liakatos, General Manager of JURA Australia says, “Productivity is key in business. Employees need to feel empowered and committed to the overall mission and goals in order to be productive during their working hours. JURA fully automatic coffee machines are the ultimate workplace perk that cuts costs, saves time and delivers big for Australian businesses. Our range of professional machines increase employee morale and productivity all while saving precious company money. It’s a win-win for both employer and employee.” While the small company statistics may be scary – for larger companies with 50 employees, coffee breaks can cost the business an average of $46,000 and 1,350 hours in lost time each year! In this case, the cost of a JURA coffee machine would pay for itself within only two months of use. The average coffee break in Australian workplaces is 15 minutes, but offices with a coffee machine can get back that valuable work time. A JURA coffee machine for your office is a cost-effective approach that guarantees barista quality coffee at the touch of a button, as the machines use freshly ground beans, not capsuled pods. What is the JURA difference? All machines use beans, not pods (tastes like barista quality and great option for sustainably conscious businesses) The JURA J.O.E app allows users to create a coffee profile for each user down to the grind, amount of milk and type of coffee (save even more time as employees can save their own personal drink settings!) Save money, calculate how much here: www.bestcoffeemachineforoffice.com.au/calculators/ Simply press a profile and the machine will start making the personalised coffee (at the touch of a button) Easy to clean, simply plug in, add the cleaning solution and the job is done (no maintenance worries!) All in the one unit (except the milk container) The best office coffee machines: JURA WE8: 30 cups per day Featuring a wide choice of speciality coffees, the WE8 is equipped with a 3L water tank, a bean container for 500g of coffee beans and a grounds container with the capacity of 25 portions.

In one single 300ml bottle, Level Lemonade contains the highest amount of magnesium found in any other drink on the market and also includes 100% of your daily intake of Vitamin C, while also being low in sugar. Based on the latest nutritional recommendations, Level Lemonade shows you how delicious a soft drink can be while also being ‘better-for-you’. One of Australia’s leading Dietitians and Nutritionists, Rebecca Gawthorne says, “Australians are becoming increasingly health conscious and seeking healthier alternatives to high sugar foods and beverages, including soft drink. I’m excited that Level Lemonade is now available nationally, as it gives Aussies the opportunity to choose a better drink option that tastes delicious and fits in with their healthy lifestyle.” “As well as being low in sugar, Level Lemonade contains Magnesium and Vitamin C. Magnesium is needed by our bodies to generate energy, make new proteins and helps keep our muscles and nerves healthy. Vitamin C helps protect our bodies cells from damage and is important for our skin, bones, connective tissue and immune system,” adds Rebecca. Level Beverages, the creators behind the new range, is excited to expand their existing range of “better for you” drink brands, which already consists of 28 BLACK natural energy drink and AriZona Iced Tea. Australia is the first country in the world to receive this truly innovative soft-drink range, with other Asia Pacific markets to follow. Managing Director of Level Beverages since 2013, Chrish Graebner, says, “We are very proud – after many years of research and development – to launch what we believe truly to be the next generation of soft-drinks. Looking for a healthful carbonated beverage is a major global consumer trend.” Level Lemonade is a premium soft drink and is ideal for anyone, the soft drink lover, for the sport and fitness fanatic, health conscious or maybe even for those in need of a hangover preventative to take as your last drink of the night. There’s a time and a place for everyone! Key differences between Level Lemonade and other soft drinks on the market include: High in Magnesium – with 160 mg per bottle Level Lemonade contains the highest amount of magnesium found in any other drink. Low Sugar – Level Lemonade is 97.5% sugar free. High in Vitamin C – The tangy drink will provide the 100% recommended daily intake of Vitamin C! High in Fizz – Level Lemonade has been carefully designed for consumers who like carbonated soft drinks, but are looking for a healthier alternative. “With kombucha being a popular choice for consumers of late, I am convinced that there are many people out there looking for a healthier, refreshing alternative who do not like the taste proposition of a fermented drink,” says Chrish. Level Lemonade is available now at Caltex nationally for RRP $3.85, selected Ezy Marts, a growing number of other fine retailers or online: www.level-lemonade.com @levellemonade #levellemonade For further information, images or product samples please contact: Rachel King @ 360 PR: rachel@360pr.com.au or (02) 9571 4448 Car Rental Chief Challenges Competitors To “Recycle For Charity” 2019-06-17T22:00:14Z car-rental-chief-challenges-competitors-to-recycle-for-charity MEDIA RELEASE For release 18 June, 2019 ‘Car Rental Chief Challenges Competitors To “Recycle For Charity”’ Car rental companies are challenged to raise money for charity by replicating Gold Coast Family Car Rentals’ Recycling for Charity program. Gold Coast, June 2019. Car Rental companies are facing a brand new challenge - to step up and raise money for charity by replicating Gold Coast Family Car Rentals’ Recycling for Charity program. Realising that many of their customers don’t have a real opportunity to cash in their containers under Queensland’s new Container deposit scheme, Gold Coast Family Car Rentals recently launched a Recycling for Charity Drive to get behind the state’s recycling program. CEO Darryl Essington-Wilson is a firm believer in giving back to the community, “We’re taking a stand against needless environmental pollution and challenging other companies to join in. Car rental companies don’t often get to make a direct contribution to the health of environment while also supporting local charities, so we’d like to maximise this opportunity and get other companies involved. Using the reusable shopping bags we provide with each rental, customers can now return their empty recyclable containers to us at the end of their trip and we’ll exchange them for cash to support a number of worthwhile charities. Proceeds will be distributed equally between the nominated organisations.” Charities that will benefit from the fund-raising drive are: Variety - the Children’s Charity headspace - National Youth Mental Health foundation Beyond Blue - Mental health support and advice for everyone in Australia Dementia Australia RSL DefenceCare - help for Australian veterans and their families in need Currumbin Wildlife Hospital – Treating and releasing sick, injured or orphaned native wildlife. Variety -The Children’s charity was founded in 1928 and supports kids and families facing immense challenges through illness, disadvantage or special needs. They enable kids to gain mobility, achieve independence, increase their self-esteem and attain their full potential. In 2018, Variety gave 111,712 Aussie kids a fair go through grants of equipment, programs, experiences and Variety Heart Scholarships. Drinks containers are the second most littered item in Queensland and a major contributor to pollution of the environment. While nearly all can be recycled, most end up in landfills. The focus of the Containers for Change scheme is on away-from-home containers, which are the most littered. The project aims to increase employment opportunities, support protection of wildlife, and foster fund raising opportunities for community organisations and charities. “We’ve registered with the Containers for Change Scheme and now have a small recycling centre up and running at our depot. This enables us to sort and return eligible containers to any of their exchange centres and have the proceeds deposited on behalf of the community benefit organisations which we support.” says Darryl. Eligible containers include beer up to 500ml and pre-mixed alcoholic drinks; soft drink and water containers between 150ml and 3 litres; flavoured milk and pure juice containers up to 1 litre. Gold Coast Family Car Rentals is a family run business committed to providing the best levels of service and value since 2001. Full details of the Recycling for Charity drive are available on their website, with links provided to make additional donations to an individual charity or an equal contribution to all six charities.

The global report breaks backpacker stereotypes and unpacks traveller behaviours across three generations, Baby Boomers, Gen X and Gen Y. The report, which surveyed over 5,000[1] people from different generations – including Australia, the USA, UK, France, Germany, India and Brazil – has revealed a noticeable shift in the activity’s backpackers do when travelling across the globe and in hostels. Partying has taken a back seat, and in its place is volunteering, venturing to off-the-beaten-track destinations and long-term planning. Furthermore, Gen Z’ers are looking to explore beyond the traditional routes with a 33% decline in trips planned to ‘tried and tested’ destinations when compared to Gen X or Baby Boomers. Busting the backpacker behaviour According to the study, there has been an 85% increase in Aussies looking to engage in volunteering whilst travelling compared with 20 years ago. Supporting this, we know that whilst nightlife is still an important part of the backpacking experience, the report shows that it is dropping down the priority list. Future travellers expect once in a lifetime experiences (34%) and culture (49%) to be more memorable than nightlife (17%). However, it doesn’t mean they don’t want to socialise at all. Future hostel travellers want to meet new people from all over the world, with almost a fifth (19%) ranking social space as the most important consideration when choosing where to stay – an area where hostels excel. Booking habits have also seen a substantial shift. Aussie Gen Z’ers are booking their accommodation 3-6 months ahead, a huge increase of 231% from past travellers. Similarly, there has been an 83% decrease in on the day bookings. The report also showcases that there is a 57% increase in Gen Z travellers planning shorter trips during their university breaks, rather than taking a full year off after school. This is a trend that’s showing a particularly strong growth for Indian (208% increase), French (70% increase) and Australian students (35% increase). In addition to social space and free activities, future travellers want unique accommodation, not just your standard hotel décor but something a bit different. In fact, hostel décor is becoming an increasingly important factor to where millennial travellers choose to book (44% increase). Gary Morrison, CEO, at Hostelworld said, “Our Evolution of the Hostel Traveller report shows how much hostelling has changed in the 20 years that we’ve been operating as the world’s leading hostel-focused online booking platform. “This is only the beginning of what’s to come. Today we’re seeing a booming hostel industry, as global demand to explore the world and connect with new cultures continues to rise. Travellers are evolving, and so are the hostels where they’re staying, which is why I am excited to see what the next 20 years will bring.” Tried and tested routes are declining. Off the beaten track routes are the winners Latin America is the biggest emerging backpacker route for Millennial and Gen Z travellers. Whilst Europe captured the hearts of past jetsetters, Central America has created a newfound appetite for adventure, with a 61% increase in travellers heading there today. For Gen Z, South America is top of their list, as one in five (20%) 16-21-year olds surveyed intend to visit South America in the next three years. According to the report, the countries with the highest growth in desire to visit for Aussie Gen Z travellers (by % growth in comparison to Millennial travellers) are: Greece (41%) Norway (39%) Portugal (31%) Sweden (28%) Denmark (18%) / Canada (18%) Belgium (15%) / USA (15%) Ireland (11%) Spain (10%) Asia continues to reign supreme for Millennial travellers, with Eastern Asian countries taking the two top spots for the most growth as a travel destination for those recent travellers. The top three countries increasing in popularity for Millennials globally (by % growth) are: South Korea – 276% increase Japan – 151% increase Cuba – 135% increase The rise of female solo travel The secret is out…female wanderlusters are seeing and experiencing more of the world. The new report reveals three-quarters (75%) of women across the world have gone or plan to go backpacking, compared to only two-thirds (67%) of men. Where solo travel was once seen as brave and risky for female travellers, a shift in attitude has meant that it is now adventurous and exciting. A trend that can be seen through Hostelworld’s own booking data reflects this trend with bookings made by solo female travellers increasing by a huge 88% over the past four years. Aussie females are also more likely to want to engage in volunteering with 66% of females planning to engage in volunteering whilst backpacking compared to just 33% of Aussie men. The growth figures for the destination’s women globally plan on travelling to are also much higher than men. Top 5 future destinations for men: Cuba (25%) increase Colombia (20%) increase Australia (17%) increase Portugal (10%) increase Brazil (10%) increase Top 5 future destinations for women: Brazil (75%) increase Iceland (67%) increase Chile (67%) increase Fiji (67%) increase Norway (67%) increase This growth in desire for adventure-prone destinations is being driven by Aussie women for Brazil, a 179% increase compared with past travellers. The Tech Traveller With technology becoming more and more accessible every day, it is no wonder that travellers are looking to tech solutions to make their backpacking experiences more seamless. Hostelworld have seen a 54% increase in bookings via the mobile app in just two years. According to the latest figures in 2018, 40% of Hostelworld’s customers booking via the mobile app compared to just 26% in 2016. The Hostelworld app isn’t just designed to make booking hostels quick and easy on the go, the in-app features encourage backpackers to get social and easily connect with each other. The most recent update saw Hostel Chat added to its functions, designed to allow travellers to easily speak to other guests regardless of languages.

Leading Agent Adrian Wilson launches Ayre Real Estate 2019-06-06T01:34:33Z leading-agent-adrian-wilson-launches-ayre-real-estate Sydney City’s leading agent returns to Agency Adrian Wilson launches Ayre Real Estate – a new way of doing business in the apartment market Media Release - 6 June 2019 Multi-award winning Real Estate Agent and entrepreneur Adrian Wilson has today launched an innovative apartment focused agency, Ayre Real Estate. Situated on the ground floor of the exclusive Sheraton On The Park hotel, the new venture by Wilson is a strategic move to offer specialised services to the premium apartment market, an area which Wilson believes has significant opportunity for improvement in the level of service, quality of marketing and specialist advice for apartment owners in this growing segment. Adrian Wilson, Founder and Principal of Ayre Real Estate says, “Buying, selling, renting or investing in apartments requires a completely different strategy to typical houses. The common agency structure does not cater well enough for the differences in approach required in order to achieve the best results for these owners. Ayre was created to fill a significant service gap in the Sydney property market at a time when apartment living is in its prime.” Adrian plans to utilise his experience as well as learnings from an Executive MBA at UTS, consulting experience to several developers and a prior executive placement for an ASX listed property company, to propel the new agency's growth. Adrian is perhaps one of the most forward-thinking and well-rounded agents the industry. The former founder of Wilson Property Agents is no stranger to the apartment market or to launching a new agency in a softer market. Back in 2008, Wilson opened his first agency on Hyde Park which went from strength to strength and was twice named one of the fastest growing companies in Australia by BRW Fast 100 awards operating from two prominent offices in Sydney City Amongst other accolades, Wilson Property Agents was awarded two Agency of the Year REINSW Awards for Excellence as well as Boutique Independent Agency of the Year by the Real Estate Business Awards, plus they took out the REINSW Digital Marketing Award prior to acquiring another agency business and then successfully exiting the company via an off-market acquisition in 2014. “There is a significant number of brand-new apartment developments which have recently been completed, are in planning or nearing settlement. These developments, alongside existing residential buildings, tend to be located and offer an attractive lifestyle or investment, especially for downsizers wanting the convenience of inner-city living or a buzzing urban village. Sydney City apartments attract strong interest from owner occupiers, investors, renters and off-plan purchasers, which means the market is more resilient during softer periods due to continued demand across all market segments" said Wilson. "The market for high quality, well located prestige apartments continues to remain relatively strong despite general market conditions. We are very excited to be leading the charge on providing a higher level of service to this market segment and believe the future prospects for our clients in this market are extremely positive,” added Wilson. About Ayre Real Estate: Ayre Real Estate has been founded by multi-award winning Real Estate Agent, Adrian Wilson, a pioneer in the Sydney City apartment market with nearly 20 years’ experience and perhaps one of the most strategic thought leaders in the industry. The Sydney City apartment specialists, delivers apartment focused services that are smarter and simpler, yet deliver beyond expectations for both owners and landlords while elevating the lives of the clients and communities they work in. ayre.com.au For further information, images or to request an interview with Adrian Wilson, please contact 360 PR: Rachel King | rachel@360pr.com.au | 02 9571 4448 Gold Coast Car Rentals Airport Family Holiday Vehicle Hire Recycle Charity Deals 2019-06-05T22:00:01Z gold-coast-car-rentals-airport-family-holiday-vehicle-hire-recycle-charity-deals Gold Coast Family Car Rentals is challenging other Queensland rental companies to join their Recycling for Charity program With its astounding natural beauty, fabulous climate and vibrant communities, the Gold Coast region attracts millions of visitors a year. And what’s not to love? Almost 60km of pristine beaches, world-heritage listed rainforests, navigable waterways and, best of all, almost 300 days of sunshine per year, make it a popular tourist destination and out-of-towners spend an average 3.2 days exploring the region’s many delights. Unfortunately, all this fun in the sun comes at a price, as Queensland uses close to 3 billion beverage containers a year. Although easy to recycle, it is the state’s second most littered item. This makes the Gold Coast a prime candidate for Containers for Change, as the refund initiative is aimed specifically at litter associated with drinks enjoyed outdoors and away from home (e.g. soft drinks, bottled water, beer, fruit juice and flavoured milk). RELATED ARTICLE: Travelling Tips From Cheap and Affordable Gold Coast Airport Car Hire Rentals Companies in Queensland Introduced in Queensland in November 2018, it gives people an incentive to collect and return containers for recycling, in exchange for a 10 cent refund payment. It reduces the number of littered drink containers and increases the state’s recycling rate. The scheme also provides benefits to social enterprises, communities, and regional and remote areas by creating a new job, recycling and fundraising opportunities. Although more than 230 container refund points are in operation across the state, Darryl Essington-Wilson, owner of Gold Coast Family Car Rentals quickly realised this his company’s holiday customers aren't able to prioritise cashing in their holiday containers, losing a small but steady income stream that could be useful elsewhere. “We saw this an ideal opportunity to suggest to our customers that they bring their cans and bottles back to our depot when they return their rental vehicles prior to going home.” Each rental vehicle is supplied with a couple of reusable shopping bags, and customers are encouraged to bring “back their empties”. Darryl registered a charity assistance program Recycling for Charity with Queensland’s Containers for Change scheme, enabling his company to return eligible containers (aluminium, glass, plastic and cardboard) and have the proceeds deposited on behalf of six charities they chose to support. RELATED ARTICLE: Find the Best Cheap Airport Car Hire Rentals Companies for Under 21 drivers in the Gold Coast, Queensland The company has built a small recycling section at its depot where containers can be separated and stored until delivered to an exchange centre. It only raises a modest amount of cash, but it’s not about the money. Visitors to the beautiful Gold Coast seem to love the idea. It allows them to leave a tiny token of their appreciation, rather than seeing money going back into government coffers. Any Queenslander can nominate Recycling for Charity to receive their 10c refund payments, but Darryl is challenging fellow Gold Coast car rental companies, in particular, to join his community fund program. “It isn’t often that car rental companies have an opportunity to make a positive contribution to both community service groups and to the environment,” he says. “We’re glad we’ve made this initiative – and want others to come on board.” Recycling for Charity supports: Variety - the Children’s Charity headspace - National Youth Mental Health Foundation Beyond Blue - Mental health support and advice for everyone in Australia Dementia Australia RSL DefenceCare - help for Australian veterans and their families in need Currumbin Wildlife Hospital – Treating and releasing sick, injured or orphaned native wildlife. All expenses in relation to Recycling for Charity are borne by Gold Coast Family Car Rentals and the program will fully and equally benefit its chosen charities. To contribute towards the initiative, use the registration ID: C10075766. For those planning to travel in and around Gold Coast city, and particularly between Surfers Paradise and Coolangatta, and including the Gold Coast Airport, making sure to book online with Car Hire Gold Coast or Gold Coast Airport Car Rental, or call + 61 7 5508 3333. Pick up and drop off at the Gold Coast Airport can be arranged. Syndicated by Baxton Media, the Market Influencers. World Oceans Day - Saturday 8 June 2019-06-04T20:33:36Z world-oceans-day-saturday-8-june Ocean Guardian committed to World Oceans Day Improving fish stocks for commercial and recreational fishing, thanks to the new FISH01 Media Release - 5 June 2019 World Oceans Day takes place every 8th of June and is celebrated worldwide to raise awareness of the importance the ocean plays in our lives and the ways people can help protect it. Ocean Guardian makes significant efforts to safeguard all marine life and is therefore proud to celebrate World Oceans Day through its commitment to ocean protection and conservation. Powered by Shark Shield® Technology; Ocean Guardian’s shark deterrent systems aren’t just designed to protect you, but also the ocean - eliminating the need for shark nets, drum lines and needless shark culls. Best of all, it doesn’t harm the shark either. The FISH01 by Ocean Guardian; is a successfully-tested new product designed to significantly reduce the number of fish taken by sharks - whilst fishing - therefore protecting fish stocks. Sharks are opportunistic by nature and will naturally single out any food source that appears easy to exploit. No-where is a shark’s opportunistic behaviour more apparent than when fishing. It’s well known among both the commercial and recreational fishing communities that a struggling fish is irresistible to sharks (i.e. known as the shark tax). Ocean Guardian CEO, Lindsay Lyon, explains “Fishermen have bag limits set by governments to manage fish stocks, however, because sharks take sometimes 7 out of every 10 fish hooked, a lot more fish die as a result of commercial and recreational fishing than the bag limits intended. The FISH01 significantly reduces the number of fish taken by sharks which then directly contributes to improving our fish stocks and environment. Not to mention, less time moving to different locations in an effort to avoid sharks, results in less fuel burned and less wasted time. A win-win for both angler and the environment”. “The FISH01 has no effect on the targeted fish species. Our Shark Shield® Technology has been developed to specifically take advantage of the highly sensitive electrical receptors called the ‘Ampullae of Lorenzini’ present in a shark’s snout. Since fish are without these receptors, Shark Shield® Technology has no effect on them. For several years now, divers and spear fisherman have reported that their catches have been unaffected by their Ocean Guardian devices,” adds Lindsay. About Ocean Guardian: The world’s only scientifically proven electrical shark deterrent. Nothing is more effective. Ocean Guardian’s Shark Shield Technology is the world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent. Developed over two decades of research and government approved, Ocean Guardian’s patented technology creates a powerful three-dimensional electrical field which causes spasms in shark’s short-range electrical receptors, proven to turn sharks away - including Great Whites. Nothing is more effective. Our products are the ultimate ocean guardian providing peace of mind for ocean lovers around the world whether you’re boating, fishing, diving, snorkelling or surfing. By using Ocean Guardian products you’ll be supporting the conservation of marine life by removing the need for lethal shark nets, drumlines, or shark culling, and increasing fish stocks by reducing shark tax. www.ocean-guardian.com For further information or to set up an interview with Lindsay Lyon please contact: Rachel King @ 360 PR: +61 2 9571 4448 / +61 423 833 814 or rachel@360pr.com.au Car Rental Companies Challenged To Recycle For Charity 2019-06-04T02:44:34Z car-rental-companies-challenged-to-recycle-for-charity MEDIA RELEASE For immediate release 4 June 2019 ‘Car Rental Companies Challenged To Recycle For Charity’ Gold Coast Family Car Rentals is challenging other rental companies to join their Recycling for Charity program The Gold Coast is one of Australia’s major event areas year-round, thanks to almost perennial sunny weather and a bustling social calendar, so there’s always something to enjoy. Visitors to the area can look forward to an array of sterling events over the winter, and many of these are free. In the lineup over the next few months are the Gold Coast Food and Wine Festival, the Groundwater Country Music Festival on Broadbeach, the SWELL Sculpture Festival on Currumbin Beach, the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show and the Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival. This is one of Australia’s largest free music festivals, featuring Australian talent as well as international acts. Gold Coast Family Car Rentals have launched a double benefit drive to help holidaymakers do good for the environment and local charities at the same time while attending events on the Gold Coast. A new initiative will see them turn their customers’ recyclables into cash for charities, and they’re urging other companies to do the same. CEO Darryl Essington-Wilson says, “We love having an array of entertainment on our doorstep year-round, drawing visitors to enjoy all the attractions on the Gold Coast. Festivals like these can, however, generate a lot of litter and we would encourage event-goers to be conscientious around their recyclables. This is why we’re now including a few reusable shopping bags to go out with each rental. Our customers can fill these with their empty drinks containers and return them to us at the end of their trip. We’ll then exchange them for cash to support six different charities in our Community fund program.” All aluminium, glass, plastic and cardboard drink containers between 15.ml and 3L can be returned under the container deposit scheme launched in Queensland in November 2018. The government levies 10c per container to help fund the 'Containers for Change' scheme and have set up exchange centres that will refund the levy on eligible containers. “Containers that go straight to a recycling centre forfeit the 10c levy refund. We saw an opportunity to make each 10c count towards a worthy cause - collecting and exchanging our customers’ empty containers means we can send those funds somewhere they can do a lot of good,” says Darryl. One of the charities that will benefit from the program is Beyond Blue, an organisation committed to providing knowledge, skills and support to people across Australia to protect their mental health. Their research shows that three million Australians currently experience anxiety or depression. Beyond Blue are tackling stigma, prejudice and discrimination and breaking down barriers to enable people to speak up and reach out when in need. Their dedicated effort reaches people at home, work, school, university, online and in communities. “We’d like to see other companies join our drive to channel funds to worthy causes like Beyond Blue and others, via our Recycling for Charity program. The 'Containers for Change' scheme is a great start to increase recycling rates in Queensland, in a time where we’re seeing plastic pollution becoming a scourge on beaches everywhere. This is an eyesore that also has a hugely detrimental impact on marine life. And if we can use that drive to give back to organisations providing support to vulnerable citizens, I’d say that’s a win-win situation.” says Darryl. Gold Coast Family Car Rentals prioritise providing the very best levels of service and value to their customers. They guarantee the lowest price, vehicle cleanliness and reliability, and peace of mind and they offer free child seats with each rental.

Gold Coast Entrepreneur Issues Challenge To Queensland Car Rental Companies 2019-05-28T01:25:51Z gold-coast-entrepreneur-issues-challenge-to-queensland-car-rental-companies-2 MEDIA RELEASE For immediate release 28 May 2019 ‘Gold Coast Entrepreneur Issues Challenge To Queensland Car Rental Companies’ Gold Coast Family Car Rentals’ Recycling for Charity initiative turns empty drinks containers into aid for local charities – and they want other Queensland rental companies to get involved. Gold Coast, May 2019. Taking a trip to the Gold Coast with the family this winter? Road trips are great fun, but they can be thirsty work. And after several stops for refreshments on the way, empty containers can pile up pretty quickly. Gold Coast Family Car Rentals is driving a new initiative to turn those empty cups, cans and cartons into cash for charity, and it’s a cinch to do. CEO Darryl Essington-Wilson elaborates, “Our vehicle preparation process now includes the addition of a couple of reusable shopping bags. These are often overlooked in holiday packing, and providing them means our customers don’t need to use plastic ones when they do their food and beverage shopping. Best of all though, when returning the car, customers can use the bags to return any empty drink containers eligible for a 10c refund. We’ll exchange them for cash in support of six different charities in our community fund program.” Darryl is extending the challenge to other Queensland car rental companies to do the same. There are approximately 3 billion containers used in Queensland every year and these are the second most littered items in the state, in spite of the fact that they can easily be recycled. Queensland launched its container refund scheme (CDS) on 1 November 2018, branded as Containers for Change to encourage recycling and reduce plastic pollution. Queensland currently has one of the lowest recycling rates in Australia at only 44%. Under this scheme, a 10c government levy per container is refunded on every container returned to an exchange centre. Aluminium, glass, plastic and cardboard drink containers between 15ml and 3L can be returned under the CDS. “Holidaymakers are not always going to have the time to find a local exchange centre, and will more likely discard them in a yellow top household bin or dumpster at their hotel. These containers will go directly to a recycling centre and the government keeps the original levy. But by bringing those containers back to us in the bags provided at the end of their trip, we can donate 10c to a worthy cause for every container returned,” says Darryl. The charities that will benefit from the initiative are: Variety - the Children’s Charity headspace - National Youth Mental Health Foundation Beyond Blue - Mental health support and advice for everyone in Australia Dementia Australia RSL DefenceCare - help for Australian veterans and their families in need Currumbin Wildlife Hospital – Treating and releasing sick, injured or orphaned native wildlife. Gold Coast Family Car Rentals prides itself on value, service and integrity, and Darryl maintains that these values extend to the greater community and the natural environment. “We have some of the most superb beaches in the world and people come from all over to enjoy them. We all need to do our bit to combat environmental pollution, and keeping our environs free of unnecessary litter is something we need to take responsibility for. It’s a big part of giving back to the area that our businesses benefit from. If we can recycle and donate to worthy charities at the same time, that’s an opportunity to do good twice at the same time.” Gold Coast Family Car Rentals boast Gold Star status as having Australia’s most consumer-friendly rental terms and conditions. They also offer the Lowest Price Guaranteed.

OZTENT MATES RATES CAMPAIGN 2019-05-27T23:48:25Z oztent-mates-rates-campaign At The OZTENT Group we love sharing the wonderful experience and spectacular beauty of the outdoors during winter. So, we’ve designed a new promotion to encourage more people to go bush through the fresher months. To run nationally from Monday 6 May to Sunday 30 June, through all reputable camping stores, the Oztent Mates Rate Campaign encourages people to stock up on the latest Oztent products and earn some money back for their investment. “While winter camping is very popular in other parts of the world, Aussies tend to like the warmer months, primarily because most products are not as comfortable, reliable and easy to use all year round, as ours”, explains Isaac Viglione, Marketing Manager, The OZTENT Group. We also recognised that leading into the end of the financial year people appreciate a good deal; and by combining these two facts we could create something that rewarded our mates for getting out and enjoying the bush during winter.” Unlike most consumer promotions the Oztent Mates Rate Campaign is not about slashing prices. It is designed to add value by rewarding people for buying more high-quality products that encourage more adventure and better experiences. While people can spend as little as $250 and redeem their invoice for cold hard cash, if they are serious about camping, they can earn up to $400 back for an investment that would see them completely kitted out and comfortable for winter.

World’s most effective shark deterrent proven by French Government Research 2019-05-27T20:28:23Z worlds-most-effective-shark-deterrent-proven-by-french-government-research Ocean Guardian’s Shark Shield Technology proven again as the world’s most effective shark deterrent by French Government Research Media Release - 28 May 2019 Following the success of the West Australian Government’s Shark Deterrent Rebate program and several independent studies proving the effectiveness of Ocean Guardian’s Shark Shield Technology to deter sharks, now the French Government has released new research conducted in Reunion Island. The research affirms Ocean Guardian has the best deterrent technology available on the market worldwide, proving efficacy on white sharks. Lindsay Lyon, CEO of Ocean Guardian said, “Reunion Island has long been known for its sharky waters and countless attacks over the years leading to a ban on surfing in many locations, and the latest shark attack fatality is tragic. Our technology can reduce the risk of shark fatalities and provide peace of mind so people can continue to enjoy the ocean without fear. Just like seat belts, people need to take all possible safety measures to reduce the their risk, including the use of proven shark deterrent devices for surfing, diving and other activities.” The research findings from the French Government present Ocean Guardian as the frontrunner in technology offerings currently on the market and also suggests that other technology being marketed as “shark deterrents” may not actually work and will not protect humans from shark bites as effectively as Shark Shield Technology. The French Government tested and researched a range of products, including ESharkForce, No Shark, RPELA and Ocean Guardian’s FREEDOM7, FREEDOM+ Surf and SCUBA7. Key findings from the latest research conducted by the French Government: Ocean Guardan’s Shark Shield Technology demonstrates efficacy on the white shark*. No safety product can be effective at 100% (seat belts, airbags, life jackets) however with the Ocean Guardian FREEDOM+ Surf the Ocean Guardian devices clearly produce the strongest electrical field. At 1M from the centre of the electrodes, the electrical field of the other devices reach only 36% (RPela) and 18% (NoShark) of the electrical field intensity of Shark Shield Technology*. Other devices (excluding Ocean Guardian) all have more or less long "dead times" during which there is no electric field in the water between the pulses*. This research indicates that the presence of an activated RPELA-v1 has no significant effect on the number of bait interactions and bites compared to an non-existent RPELA-v1*. Two-time World Surfing Champion, Tom Carroll said, “Ocean’s Guardian’s FREEDOM+ Surf has been specifically designed for surfers to protect themselves while out in the ocean doing what they love most, without impacting on performance and it doesn’t harm marine life. To me it’s a win win situation – my family and I have the peace of mind that I’ll be safe and we’re not culling sharks in their natural habitat, as essentially we’re the ones intruding.” Lindsay adds, “We are not surprised by the impressive results, and pleased to have the support of the French Government. Our company is proud to produce effective shark deterrent devices and it’s great to be recognised. Shield Technology has been independently tested by multiple Shark Scientists and government research teams, including the NSW Department of Industries and now more recently the French Government.” www.oceanguardian.com.au *Research results of experimental tests on personal protective devices with electric shark deterrents by the French Government. About Ocean Guardian: In 2018, the Shark Shield company became Ocean Guardian®. The change of name reflects our bigger ambition - to replace shark nets and drum lines globally - to make you safe whatever you enjoy doing in the Ocean, while also protecting marine life. Ocean Guardian, powered by Shark Shield Technology, are the makers of the world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent. Government approved and developed over two decades of research, Ocean Guardian’s patented technology creates a powerful three-dimensional electrical field, which causes safe but unbearable spasms in shark’s short-range electrical receptors, turning sharks away - including Great Whites. Nothing is more effective.
