Whakahekea – Learning to reduce the waste pile

Kiwi and Tui have been learning all about natural resources and how to sort, recycle and repurpose objects that could otherwise end up in landfill.

Did you know: In New Zealand we discard 15.5 million tonnes of waste each year. That is 3,200kg for every kiwi. Right now we only recycle 28 percent of this waste.

If everyone in the world lived like we do in New Zealand, we would need nearly 3 planets to sustain our demand.

Here’s hoping we can make a conscious effort to consume less and recycle more!
