Why we're putting quality first...

Cooper's Pet Kitchen

Hi neighbours! At Cooper's Pet Kitchen our food is free of cheap fillers like grains, corn, soy & wheat... but what does that really mean?

It means there’s more protein-packed nutrition in every bite. We’re big believers in quality over quantity so while our food may be a little … View more
Hi neighbours! At Cooper's Pet Kitchen our food is free of cheap fillers like grains, corn, soy & wheat... but what does that really mean?

It means there’s more protein-packed nutrition in every bite. We’re big believers in quality over quantity so while our food may be a little more expensive than some, its nutrient density makes for smaller portions with more readily absorbable nutrients.

Get more bang for your dog’s bite with 50% OFF your first order with code NEIGHBOURLY.

This also means a decrease in what comes out the other end... less 'picking up' what they’re 'putting down' at the dog park if you catch our drift.

Kaikōura residents concerned coastal roadworks could be running roughshod over sacred sites have put a temporary stop to construction by barricading a road.

The protesters, who broke away from community group Protect Our Unique Kaikōura Coast, have been occupying the Kiwi Rd intersection with State Highway 1 since February 2, over what they believe is the "desecration" of the coast.

South Island district's residents upset to learn recycling going straight to landfill

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Environmentally conscious Kaikōura residents say they have been misled by their council, which has been landfilling paper and plastics intended for recycling.

"Every week, our kerbside team collects tonnes of 'recycling' that is actually rubbish (things that cannot currently be recycled and have to go to our landfill)," Innovative Waste Kaikōura said on Facebook.

Council senior operations manager Dave Clibbery said people were not told of the changes to recycling markets because it had been hoped it was a short-term problem.

However, there had not been a reliable market for coloured plastics since 2016 and the materials that had been stockpiled were now deteriorating and being dumped in the landfill.

He maintained the council was correct in telling people they could still deposit all plastics in their recycling, even though they were likely to be stockpiled and/or landfilled.
