A huge congratulations to mother and son duo, Mary and Sam Danielson from The Puketapu Hotel.

The votes for all finalists have been tallied and they have been chosen by Neighbourly members across the country as the Prospa Local Business Hero of 2024.

The Puketapu Hotel was nominated by a local called Margaret and the nomination reads:
'On Feb 14, 2023, Cyclone Gabrielle flooded many of the rural areas. Puketapu Hotel went under perhaps half a meter of water. However, immediately Mary Danielson and her son, Sam Danielson, along with their loyal staff pulled it together to cook copious amounts of food that without electricity would have been wasted. Throughout the years many of us have been treated with a pub gathering where we can reconnect and a free meal. At Christmas there was Santa, games, gifts for kids, donated patchwork for adults, an ice cream truck and lots of camaraderie.
This February on the cyclone anniversary, they again pulled out the stops to give hundreds of us a special night. We are all tired of the cyclone cleanup and they understood that it was needed.'

Such a deserving business and team, well done Mary and Sam. And thank you to all those who voted!

Tips on Incorporating Sustainable Bedroom Furniture into Your Living Space

Marketing Manager from Beds4U Newmarket

When making our homes comfortable, we also want to think about how our choices affect the environment.

That's why it's important to consider the furniture we use, especially in our bedrooms.


Let's talk about sustainable bedroom furniture and how it can fit into your life.

When making our homes comfortable, we also want to think about how our choices affect the environment.

That's why it's important to consider the furniture we use, especially in our bedrooms.


Let's talk about sustainable bedroom furniture and how it can fit into your life.

Eco-Friendly Furniture

Choosing eco-friendly furniture is more than just a trend; it's a commitment to sustainability and responsible living.

But what is Eco-Friendly Furniture?

Eco-friendly furniture, also known as sustainable furniture, is designed and manufactured with the planet in mind, minimising environmental impact while maximising style and functionality.

It’s crafted from materials and produced using processes that have minimal negative effects on the environment.

This includes utilizing renewable resources, recycled materials, and sustainable manufacturing practices.

By opting for eco-friendly furniture, you reduce your carbon footprint and support industries prioritizing environmental stewardship.

Materials Matter

So, what makes furniture eco-friendly?

One of the key elements of eco-friendly furniture is the materials used in its construction. Sustainable options often include:

Wood. Look for furniture made from sustainably sourced wood. These woods are harvested in a way that maintains the health of forests and ecosystems.

Recycled Materials. Furniture crafted from recycled materials, such as reclaimed wood or recycled plastics, gives new life to old resources, reducing the need for new materials and diverting waste from landfills.

Natural Fibers. Upholstered furniture made from natural fibers like organic cotton, hemp, or bamboo reduces the environmental impact compared to synthetic materials and minimizes exposure to harmful chemicals.

It's also important to pick furniture that's built to last. When you invest in quality pieces, you're not only reducing waste but also saving money in the long run.


Sustainable Manufacturing Practices

In addition to using eco-friendly materials, sustainable furniture manufacturers prioritize environmentally conscious production methods. This includes:

Energy Efficiency. Manufacturers invest in energy-efficient technologies and practices to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions during the production process.

Waste Reduction. Minimizing waste through efficient manufacturing processes and recycling or repurposing materials helps conserve resources and reduce landfill waste.

Fair Labor Practices. Sustainable furniture companies often prioritize fair labor practices, ensuring that workers are treated ethically and paid fair wages throughout the supply chain.

Sustainable Bedroom Meets Style

You might think that eco-friendly furniture means sacrificing style, but that's not the case anymore.

Today, sustainable bedroom furniture comes in all sorts of stylish designs.

Whether you like the classic look of wooden furniture or the modern feel of sleek designs, there's something eco-friendly for everyone's taste.

Transform Your Bedroom with Sustainable Furniture

Choosing sustainable bedroom furniture isn't just a trend; it's a way to live better and help the environment.

At Beds4U, we care about offering furniture that's good for you and the planet.

We're here to offer you furniture that's good for your home and the planet.

Remember, making eco-friendly choices is about more than just what looks good—it's about what feels good.

When you choose sustainable furniture, you're making your home nicer and helping to take care of the world we live in.

So, why not check out our selection of sustainable bedroom furniture?

With Beds4U, you can sleep well knowing you've made a choice that's good for you and the environment.

Let's make our bedrooms greener, one piece of furniture at a time.

Tauranga’s Incubator Creative Hub unveils new campus

In the heart of Tauranga's creative landscape, what began as a small studio space has now blossomed into a vibrant and expansive creative hub thanks in part to lottery funding support from Te Puna Tahua Lottery Grants Board. The Incubator Creative Hub was established at The Historic Village in 2013, with an aim to provide studios and events, support for the creatives in the community, and to attract art groups.

Within a few years of opening, the founders of the Hub saw a huge appetite from the community – but the hub operated in a single room which could only accommodate a small group comfortably. Lotto New Zealand players through Local Grants have helped create the ‘Creative Community Campus’ - a new multi-room, indoor-outdoor haven established in a renovated pre-school building, adding a modern and versatile space.

The Hub now operates an umbrella of sixteen distinct creative entities including five galleries, a music venue, a whakairo hub, artist studios, a photography lab, designer clothing stores and a hip hop/R&B studio. With one hundred percent of Lotto New Zealand profits being returned to local communities, every time you play a Lotto New Zealand game, you’re a Kiwi helping organisations like The Incubator Creative Hub foster a strong, inclusive, and connected community.

One of the biggest events on the Porirua calendar is set down for 8 June this year: the Love Local Expo.

Te Rauparaha Arena will be bursting at the seams as vendors showcase the best that our city has to offer, from products and services, to crafts and community events.

There will be offerings including craft beer, cupcakes, jewellery, custom homewares, gyms and cheerleading, activities and exhibits.

Love Local began in 2020 as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic, giving Porirua businesses a boost coming out of lockdowns.

There are many ways to get to Te Rauparaha Arena for the expo – catch the train to Porirua and walk or e-scooter around the harbour path to the venue, catch a bus to stops on Norrie St and Lyttelton Ave, or park close by. Car parking might be difficult to get in the Arena car park on the day.

Love Local Expo, free entry, Saturday 8 June, 10am-4pm, Te Rauparaha Arena.

Mobile classrooms teach more than 200,000 tamariki annually across Aotearoa

Life Education Trust New Zealand has been a beacon of empowerment for Kiwi children and youth for over 35 years. Through innovative teaching programmes, this trust has touched the lives of tamariki and rangatahi across the country, helping them grow and thrive. Supported by funding from Te Puna Tahua Lottery Grants Board, through funds raised by Lotto New Zealand players, Life Education Trust's initiatives - including the renowned ‘Healthy Harold’ programme - have been instrumental in shaping the educational landscape in Aotearoa.

With mobile classrooms traversing the nation, Life Education Trust reaches over 200,000 tamariki every year, bringing quality education to various communities. The unique approach of using specialist educators and Harold the giraffe mascot creates a safe and engaging learning environment.

Life Education Trust is set to launch Harold's Studio this year. This new endeavour will leverage technology to deliver Healthy Harold lessons through online platforms, showcasing the trust's commitment to evolving and enhancing its educational offerings to meet the changing needs of tamariki.

One hundred percent of Lotto New Zealand’s profits go back to support thousands of great causes all over Aotearoa. So, every time you play any Lotto NZ game, it’s a win for our communities, and it’s a win for our tamariki.
