Are you happy about the loss of 8,000 planted native seedlings?

Todd Niall Reporter from Community News

Kia ora Neighbours, A contested decision by politicians on the Upper Harbour Local Board to mow down 8,000 native plants and young trees, could bring a hefty bill. Council staff reject that there was a mistake in the planting, and now there could be a big bill. What do you think ?

Poll: Do you support the idea of sustainable gifting?

Lexi from Newmarket

Hi I'm a yr12 Epsom Girls Grammar student conducting a brief poll to find out whether there is support for adapting a sustainable approach over conventional gifting practices.

Sustainable gifting is choosing multi-purpose and/or eco-friendly products and recyclable packaging rather than random, impulsive products that may be thrown away later and single use packaging such as wrapping paper and non-recyclable cellophane/plastic.

Some of our local retailers are already making their input into sustainable products. These include however are not limited to: Kathmandu, Macpac, The Body Shop, Organic/Bulk stores such as Huckleberry etc. These products are sometimes labeled as recycled, traceable, organic or compostable.

This is a part of my Environmental Studies internal project and I would really appreciate if you took a minute of your time to answer 1 question.
