This guide covers Christchurch City and Banks Peninsula only. For the rest of the Canterbury region, please click here.
Christchurch is simply amazing for zero waste living. We’ve dubbed it the Zero Waste Capital of New Zealand. Apart from the impressive array of stores and businesses offering consumers low-waste options for food, drink, bathroom and cleaning products, there are just so many community organisations and initiatives supporting the people of Christchurch to reduce waste through projects that focus on resourcefulness, resilience and creativity. We were thoroughly impressed and inspired and believe that all cities in New Zealand should have a look at what’s going on in Christchurch!
As there are just so many low-waste shopping options in Christchurch, we’ve divided the guide into FIVE geographical parts. Click on the area that’s relevant to you, although note that more than one area may be relevant (the boundaries are a bit arbitrary!), so you may wish to click between them 🙂
