This week, we want to raise awareness about sustainability and how everyone can help reduce waste by simply embracing this idea: Recycle, Reuse, Relove.
Most of us love shopping and buying something new, but do we also think about the things we throw out?
It’s a shame to send good quality items to landfill when someone else could still reuse and benefit from them.
The exciting news is that many people are recycling by giving good stuff to charity, so that others have the opportunity to reuse and relove them.
Give pre-loved items a chance to be reused by donating them to your local Red Cross Shop!
Come in and have a look at the great things we have received in our Red Cross Shops. You might find something to reuse, and even relove.
The best part: every dollar spent in the shop goes to help vulnerable people in communities across New Zealand and around the world.
Next Tuesday is World Car Free Day and the council is encouraging Wellingtonians to leave their car at home.
Local schools will also be encouraging students to walk, cycle or scooter.
Workers will be encouraged take a bus or a train, or even walk, rather than their car. Have your ever thought what your neighborhood would be like if there were fewer cars?
Wellington City is proposing a by-law banning unaddressed or advertising mail being put in letter boxes marked "no circulars" or '"no junk mail".
The by-law is part of a waste management plan to reduce the amount of material going in to landfills.
