Seed Sharing for Neighbours Day!

The Team from Neighbours Day Aotearoa

We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.

ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!

Heavy Metals in the water supply

Maria from Betta Water Filtration

Warning: Long post but important info for your health!

This is straight off the TCC Website - re Heavy Metals in your pipes!

"Plumbosolvency
Flush those taps!
We're encouraging Western Bay residents to flush their water taps daily before drinking or using water for cooking. Why you ask? To get rid of any heavy metals absorbed from household plumbing.

While we are sleeping, or when we don't use our water taps for a number of hours, heavy metals from plumbing fittings - lead, nickel, cadmium, copper and antimony - can dissolve into our water.

To ensure we are not drinking these metals, the Ministry of Health recommends you tip out the first 500ml of water from the cold tap each morning and after returning home at the end of a day away.

Problem solved!" Copied off TCC website.

(REALLY? ) 500 mls is nothing! Run your tap a good 30 secs in the morning, and this will flush about 5 litres through. And if you've a long driveway, make it a minute at least!

Installing a water filter is a much more reliable way to prevent ingesting heavy metals in your water supply!

For more information, see the Ministry of Health's fact sheet.

This is an American article, but has a lot of relevant info too about heavy metals potentially in our water supply.
