Saturday 23rd of January 2016 saw the beginning of an annual event around fun, creativity, innovation and genius with Zero Waste in the forefront. The inurgural Zero Waste Raft Race attracted 3 teams on a beautiful sunny Kaikoura morning, with recyclable rafts of varying descriptions, shapes and sizes, pedal power included! The key message for the event was to encourage people to think more about recycling & zero waste in particular - and to make it fun.
The IWK truck parked up beach side with baled material, particularly the bale of single use soft plastic, was a great visual for the recycling message.
Watch this space for a bigger better event in 2017 - challenges welcome!
