Here we have it – a zero waste shopping guide for the Greater Wellington Region (including Wellington City, Porirua, Hutt Valley, Kāpiti Coast, and Wairarapa). Woohoo!
As Wellington was our training ground for living zero waste, it was natural for us to scope out the options in the city and the surrounding region, to discover what exciting and forward-thinking businesses and community groups make Te Ūpoko o te Ika home. So, in this guide we have expanded our Wellington-based experience to include as many options as possible for living zero waste in Porirua, Kāpiti, the Hutt Valley and Wairarapa.
Please, if you know of a business that we have missed from this list, let us know! We will happily update this post with any suggestions, provided that the business stocks something that helps its customers to reduce their waste.
The guide is broken down into five geographical areas so that you can search your neck of the woods with ease (just click on your area in the bullet list below).
