The Rubbish Trip kicked off our nationwide tour in Manawatū. After spending two weeks in Palmerston North and Feilding, running presentations, a workshop and recording some podcasts, we were thoroughly blown away by the array of zero waste options in Manawatū, and the general enthusiasm for, and awareness about, waste reduction that we found there. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to start our year and we left feeling very uplifted and energised (and special thanks to Liam’s Mum and Dad for making our stay so comfy!).
Since then, we’ve done a loop around the North Island – from Cape Reinga and back – and have now updated this guide to include Whanganui shops and community groups as well. Woohoo!
NB: We love it when you share our guides with others – please do so by sharing the link to our website, rather than copying and pasting our work and reproducing it elsewhere.
We’ve divided the guide in two, for ease of reference. Click through to the part you’re interested in:
- Palmerston North City, and Manawatū, Horowhenua and Rangitikei Districts
- Whanganui and Ruapehu Districts
We do what we can to find as many shops, community groups and services as possible, but inevitably we do miss things, so please let us know, by commenting or dropping us an email, if there’s something that isn’t in this guide that should be!
