Are you going out of your way to collect plastic bags before they become illegal in NZ? Some Kiwis have admitted they are stockpiling bags before they can no longer get them from supermarkets and petrol stations.
It's been noticed that some customers have been taking plastic bags for things like single chocolate bars and drinks "to save up".

Have you heard this trick before? A handy hack on how to open OXO cubes is causing a stir online, as it seems many of us have been doing it all wrong.
Forget crumbling up the cube after opening the silver foil packaging - it seems that packaging was actually designed to be flattened. To read more click here.
Simply open up the flaps on the side, flatten them out and then crumble the cube inside the package, turning it into a powder that's a heck of a lot easier to add to your dish.
Did you know this handy trick? Have you been opening the cubes the wrong way your whole life like the rest of us? Will this make cooking for your family a little easier? Share your thoughts in the replies below!
How cool is this? These Te Aroha students recently picked up litter and rubbish in an effort to clean up their own community. The good deed was part of Clean Up Week 2018. To read more about this, click here.
Is this something that's been happening in Hamilton too? Do you know students here that deserve some praise? Give them a shout out here!
Some of the students said it just "wasn't cool" to litter and it was everyone's responsibility to keep their little corner of New Zealand beautiful. Which parts of Hamilton would you like to see cleaned up a bit? Share your thoughts in our replies below!
