Here at Central Kids Owhata Kindergarten in Rotorua, we are trying every day to be more sustainable. One way we do this is to collect any Glad Wrap or Glad Bags from our pouaka kai/lunchboxes and save it up till we get a big bundle.
We post off our Glad Wrap and Glad Bags to TerraCycle New Zealand who recycle a range of plastics into new products. One of these products that are produced are indoor/outdoor mats and this month we were lucky enough to win a mat from TerraCycle in the “Glad to Recycle” competition.
Here are some of our tamariki with the products they save from their kai sitting on the new mat we just received.
Thank you so much to TerraCycle and GLAD for our bright colourful mat!
