Do you pick up rubbish on the street?

Amy Ridout Reporter from The Nelson Mail

West Coaster Des Watson is on a one-man mission to clean up New Zealand. Last week, he visited Tasman and Nelson, collecting as much as 80kg of rubbish a day.

Is he alone? Or are there other rubbish renegades out there? Do you ever take a bag with you and pick up discarded bottles, cans and plastic when you're out and about?

New blog post: Neighbourly in the news!

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

We love seeing Neighbourly members mentioned in the news - and we've seen a few in the last few months. From a Neighbourly group that has united the masses right through to a neighbourhood who rallied to deliver a 250kg piano to two blind sisters - there is a lot of good going on in Neighbourly communities around the country. You can read about them right here in our latest blog post.

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

To celebrate World Car Free day, all bus trips, including the $4 late-bus service will be free for all passengers this weekend!

Nelson City Council said this initiative is about "finding ways to take individual action to reduce emissions", and Car Free Day "speaks for itself".

Happy travelling, neighbours!
