Hi neighbours,

A lot of what we're putting in our recycling bins cannot be recycled.

Paul Evans, chief executive of waste management industry body WasteMinz, says in 2018 about 10 per cent of each Auckland household's recycling bin was "contamination" – items that people had put in hoping for the best, but which could not be recycled.

If you're in doubt whether something belongs in the recycling bin, the best practice is to simply leave it out.

All it takes is a kind gesture to change someone’s day. From paying it forward in line at a cafe to giving flowers to a friend ‘just because’ - this month we’re encouraging our members and supporters to make New Zealand a better place one random act of kindness at a time.

The options for doing so are endless! Being kind doesn’t have to cost a thing, after all a smile is free. For those who want to go the extra mile, here’s some other ideas: Buy extra kai at the grocery store to donate to a food pantry, help someone with a broken down car or flat tire, bring treats into work for colleagues, send an encouraging text to someone who needs it, let a car into the traffic ahead of you, take a gift over to new neighbours and introduce yourself, write positive messages in chalk on sidewalks around your neighbourhood, or surprise loved ones with a visit.

This month also coincides with World Humanitarian Day on August 19th and Random Acts of Kindness Day (New Zealand) which is on September 1st.

Let us know how you’re spreading kindness in your community by tagging us in your posts + using the following hashtag so we can see what you get up to:

KINDLING FUNDRAISER
My sons are off to Australia with their Shirley Boys High cricket team in September and I am making them raise half the cost of their trip.

$10 per box.

We can deliver 6 boxes or more for free within the Chch area (at a time that suits)

Kindling can also be picked up from either Burwood or Harewood (Near Bishopdale)

For any elderly people living in the Brighton area (or nearish to Burwood rd) we will happily deliver a single box if that is all you need as we have had a few elderly men and woman whom aren't able to get out and don't require 6 boxes. We would rather drop a box off to you than you be cold.

They have sold a lot to very happy people but still have boxes left.

Price: $10
