Down and out with ex­ces­sive pack­ag­ing!

Element - - Upfront -

More than 2,000 votes have been re­ceived in New Zealand’s Un­packit Pack­ag­ing Awards to find the coun­try’s best and worst pack­ag­ing. Or­gan­is­ers Wanaka Waste­busters are aim­ing for 10,000, and are run­ning a com­pe­ti­tion for schools and com­mu­nity groups. “Schools and com­mu­nity groups re­ally help spread the word about the Awards, and it’s great to give them some­thing back,” said Un­packit spokesper­son So­phie Ward. A $1000 prize will go to the school and the not-for-profit group who send the most vot­ers to un­packit.org. Plus all reg­is­tered schools and com­mu­nity groups will re­ceive 20 cents each time they’re cho­sen by a voter.

To reg­is­ter, email So­phie on email@un­packit.org.nz
