Zero-waste Strategy Management: Here's the Volunteers at work. Dressed in our official crew kowhai/yellow or kikorangi/blue T-shirt and cow boy hat, we trudged our kikorangi/blue and kakariki/green
bins to our different stations. By chance, I got involved in Ngarimu's
Zero waste program. Ngarimu also sourced cutlery and plates made of
potatoes which is 10-0% biodegradable.
it is inevitable that we have to use disposable cutlery and crockery.
The convenience outweighs the tedious job of washing up like a big
picnic or party.
I am very proud to be associated with Ngarimu
and his Ngati Whatua Maori people in leading the zero waste movement in
New Zealand. During our Waitangi Day, Ngarimu led a whole army of
volunteers to teach tens of thousands of festival goers recycling.
walk the talk, Ngarimu supplied cutlery and crockery made of potato.
These special disposable forks, spoons, knives and plates went to the
worms at the worm farms on the Marea.
These food fed
the army of workers and volunteers. The yummy food came in big
containers at lunch time. Ka Pai aka good job. No need for too much
washing up and harmful detergent.
Can you see the beige colour forks, knives and plates?
