Kaikōura's Newest Envirokids

2018.04 letter to council edited

Jack and Mila are Kaikōura's newest environmentalists...

Last week Council received a letter from some passionate and caring students from Room 5 at Kaikōura Primary School. Jack and Mila wrote to Council asking if "the community of Kaikōura" could pick up rubbish so that "nature doesn't die". 

They let us know that clean seas and land would be "marvelous because we can admire all of our wonderful sea creatures" and "eat all our fish without any plastic in them". 

Lets all take a leaf from Jack and Mila's book and make sure we are disposing of rubbish responsibly. Innovative Waste has lots of opportunities to upcycle, recycle and even bicycle! 

Thanks Jack and Mila, we think you are really awesome!

We are consistently working towards a cleaner, greener and more sustainable future and with people like you making your voice heard, we know Kaikōura is going to be in good hands!
