We take the bite out of the sun in more ways than one

Melanoma Institute Australia

The southern sun has a serious bite, causing one of the highest skin cancer rates in the world. We want to do something about it, but creating shade is only half the battle. To keep Australians healthy and safe we support charities like Melanoma Institute Australia who help soften the sun’s harsh rays in other ways. At Greenline we think we’re pretty lucky – our loyal clients have helped us build a business providing shade solutions for two generations. That’s why it’s our duty to make sure future generations can enjoy the great Aussie sun, without the bite.

How Greenline are helping

Greenline recognises the importance of sun protection and have always promoted a sun safe, active, outdoor lifestyle. We are the first to admit – we weren’t aware of how big the problem is! Apart from providing shade we wanted to do something about melanoma and have decided to become a sapphire partner of Melanoma Institute Australia.

With melanoma being referred to as ‘Australia’s national cancer’ where almost 14,000 Australians are expected to be diagnosed in 2017 and 1800 Australians expected to die from Melanoma in 2017: that is five people each day – we need to create change! Many of these people are in the 15-39 age bracket. We know we can make a real difference through education and increasing our impact.

Is your school, workplace or community sun safe?

Let’s share MIA’s message in every conversation we have to create action. Have you had a skin check?

Greenline is delivering opportunities to talk about melanoma and spread the message: with more skin checks and earlier diagnosis there will be more survivors. Greenline through our support for MIA will be funding amazing research projects!

Over the past five years, the use of surgery plus additional treatments have significantly extended life expectancy in people with advanced disease (where the melanoma has spread to other organs). These treatments include targeted therapies (modifying the actions of specific genes) and immunotherapies (modifying the actions of the immune system). In a recent MIA-led trial, researchers have made a major breakthrough by tripling the life expectancy for some advanced melanoma patients. However many others are not responding to new treatments and further research is vital.

Check out MIA’s webpage and have a look at some of the great work they are doing. Get in touch if you would like someone to come to your school or workplace! and remember the ABCDs! (watch the video to see what we’re talking about!)

Echuca East Primary School, Jodi Boal

I find engaging with Greenline completely professional. The customer service is exemplary and the three projects I have been involved in with Greenline gives me confidence in their communication, ability to meet deadlines and appease a customer, quality of work, competency in meeting regulations and OHS measures

I have great confidence in this team/company.

Wodonga Primary School, Damian Duncan

I have used Greenline for a number of years now as I have always found them to provide excellent customer service, great quality and reliability.

I have had a number of shade sails installed by Greenline and our most recent project was a covered walkway to provide extra shelter for our students.

From day one, the walkway was such a big hit, with so many students using it that we actually had to provide extra staff in the area for additional student supervision. Thank you Greenline.

Wyndham Central College - Bryan Wollard - Assistant Principal

From my first meeting with a Greenline representative I was very impressed with the professional presentation about the company as well as the work they would do and service they would provide if they were to construct our COLA project.

The process relating to construction was very well explained with timelines, contractors details and security and safety measures put in place. Communication throughout the project was regular and informative. Contractors working on site were very co-operative and professional whilst performing their construction tasks.

Overall, the finished product is absolutely great. It has exceeded all our expectations and is now a real asset for the school.

Greenline did a great job here and I would recommend them to any school wanting to develop a COLA.
