Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore) (16:41:59):
I recognise Mosman mum and local business champion Tamara Keniry for her outstanding contributions to my local community. Tamara is a busy mother of three who runs her own business and is also president of the Mosman Chamber of Commerce. Tamara is leading the Think Mosman First initiative, aimed at supporting local shops and businesses recover from the impacts of COVID-19. The initiative is designed to encourage residents to spend locally and enjoy a meal at many of the great restaurants and cafes in my local area. Tamara is also the founder of PureFree, which designs and supplies re-usable coffee cups and glass bottles to reduce the impact of waste. With the onset of the COVID pandemic, Tamara had to adapt and overcome unprecedented challenges like many local businesses in my area. Yet still she is driven by a passion for creating sustainable solutions, and we talk about this particularly with the recent announcement about getting rid of single-use plastics in New South Wales. I congratulate Tamara on her continued commitment to and passion for the environment. I thank her for championing initiatives to support local businesses in our community.
