A Great Clean-Up
The Warehouse and Neighbourly have joined forces to tidy up neighbourhoods.
A nationwide initiative, The Great Community Clean Up (GCCU), is encouraging Kiwis to get out into their communities to give them a clean-up between October 3 and October 9.
The Warehouse executive general manager community and environment Paul Walsh says something as simple as picking up rubbish from your local street or park is a great way to get involved.
A number of The Warehouse stores are organising their own clean-up events in their neighbourhoods.
Neighbourly co-founder Casey Eden says the event is about encouraging ‘‘each and every one of us to take ownership of the places we call home’’.
‘‘A clean-up doesn’t have to be a huge gesture,’’ Eden says.
‘‘The smallest acts really can make a difference and show your community you care.
‘‘Plus, they make your community a cleaner place for you and your neighbours to live in.’’
Registering a Great Community Clean Up event on Neighbourly puts members in the draw to win prizes including $100 gift cards from The Warehouse. The campaign also has an award for the Little Kiwi Clean Up Star - recognising those aged 13 and under who take part.
