Today marks the first day of Plastic Free July - a global movement to reduce plastic pollution.
Everyone is encouraged to get involved, even if it's just making a few small changes to your purchases or routine. It's not about a handful of people doing plastic-free perfectly, it's about millions of people around the world doing it imperfectly - and it works!
Will you be joining the challenge this month?

Come along and hear both myself and the National Party Spokesperson for Infrastructure and Transport, and MP for Hutt South, Chris Bishop, speak about the future of Wellington Transport. This will be an interactive discussion about transport, so make sure to have your questions ready. One of the main areas of focus will be on the transport policies too announced last week including the duplication of the Mt Vic Tunnel.
The event will be held at the Hataitai Bowling Club on Monday 10 August (Tomorrow), starting at 7:30 pm.

We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.
