REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE

Infinite growth in a finite planet does not make sense and it is the cause of climate change.  Making the changes to our lifestyles that reduce our demand for new things can be fun and save money too.

If you are a creative, a practical 'fixer of things' or someone who wants to make a difference why not initiate a project or join the teams trying to make recycling work in our community. Are you a landowner who wants to explore sites for a community compost scheme? Do you want to start a Share Shed for sharing big equipment?  Anything is possible.  You could make a difference.  Need help?  Contact BNZ.

The Big Red Telephone Box

Huge thanks to Holywell Stores who have allowed BNZ to convert their telephone bix into a lending library for books on nature, gardening, home cooking and the environment.  The library is supported by regular donations of books on these topics.  The lovely graphics on the windows were drawn by local artists and more can be added (use the pens inside the box). The library was opened by local author Anna Turns who wrote : Go Toxic Free".  Holywell Stores offer a home delivery service with online ordering so that we can buy local and reduce the number of big supermarket delivery vans in our parish.

Beach Toy Share
