Stand Up, Bay Of Plenty

Why Waste - "On Sunday the 19th of May between 12 and 2pm at the Omanu Surf Club we will create a mountain of 2400 used plastic bottles to give an idea of what one minutes worth of production looks like. They'll be packed up on Sunday evening and will be delivered to the doors of the courthouse in Whakatane where the appeal is taking place. At a time when countries all over the world are figuring out how to turn the tide on single use plastics, our leaders have paved the way for international water bottling giants to set up shop alongside vulnerable communities across NZ. Combined they will produce more plastic water bottles than England consumes on a year. 2400 bottles represents the number of bottles the proposed plant (Otakiri - Whakatane) will be capable of producing EVERY MINUTE, 24/7.That is 1.3 billion bottles per year." Show up and fight for YOUR future.
