Love shopping but hate waste? If you're curious how to keep your shopping habit sustainable (on the environment and your wallet too), the Refuse the Refuse Market could be a good place to start.

From skincare to underwear, the market will showcase local businesses who are committed to reducing waste and being kind to the earth. The eco-friendly lineup includes vegan treats by In Bloom, organic cotton underwear by Thunderpants, up-cycled jewellery by Three March Hares, skincare by Smooch Natural Products, Fairtrade clothing by Little Yellow Bird, period products by Wa Collective, plus loads more.

Do your bit this Plastic-Free July by stocking up on ethical goodies for yourself or for your pals, and support some clean, green businesses at the same time.

Saturday, 27 July (this weekend)
10:30am to 2:30pm
2 Forresters Lane (opposite Bunnings on Tory Street) Wellington.

The Wellington Curtain Bank desperately needs your help. Every year it upcycles and provides over two-thousand pairs of curtains to households across the Wellington Region.

With winter finally settling in, they are dangerously low on curtains and are at risk of not being able to meet the demand for this social service.

If you have non-mouldy curtains you no longer need, please donate them to the Curtain Bank and Spark Joy knowing that you have helped to warm up another person’s home.

The Curtain Bank also desperately needs lining for these curtains. If you have white/cream or grey poplin/polyester/cotton or calico sheets in your linen cupboard please donate them to the Curtain Bank.
