Sustainable living experiment kicks off in Melbourne

An interesting social experiment is taking up temporary residence in Melbourne this weekend.

In a rejection of mass consumption, a sustainably-built apartment will be crammed onto Federation Square and two people will live in it for five days scavanging to survive.

Essentially, the pair will have to borrow, rent, swap or source everything they'll need second hand.
 
Anna Hipsley spoke to Tamara di Mattina, who came up with the idea and actually embraces this philosophy in her day to day life.
