'He taonga nō te whenua, me hoki anō ki te whenua.'
What is given by the land should return to the land.
- We are New Zealand first 100% committed childcare centre to Zero waste. We support young families in our Pakuranga community to do their bit to protect Papatūānuku “the land”, Tāne “the forests” and Tangaroa “the sea” for our children and future generations.
- We aim to send nothing to a landfill by reducing what we need, reusing as much as we can, sending little to be recycled, and composting what we cannot.
- We stopped using Auckland city council weekly landfill collection service in December 2020 and we celebrate our zero-waste achievements by counting how many nappies we are saving from going to landfill and how much organic waste turned into healthy organic soil since January 2020.
We did it! But that doesn’t mean we’re done. Join our Little Seed community anytime you feel like making a positive impact on our children’s future and improving our environment!
