Living without a rubbish bin is certainly possible in the Bay of Plenty (though in some parts it’s certainly more doable than others). Overall we were excited and heartened by the waste-free shopping options in the Bay of Plenty and the awesome waste-busting community projects happening across the region. We hope that you feel so too!

No doubt we will have missed some stores or items that should be on here. Please, if you know of a business that we have missed from this list, let us know! Don’t hesitate to get in contact with us (or leave a comment at the end of the guide, below) and we will endeavour to update the guide as soon as possible.
