Ju­nior eco-war­rior’s choc chip bribery

Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE - By KRIS DANDO

Leon Chick com­bined one of his pet peeves with choco­late bis­cuits on Fri­day.

The Ti­tahi Bay 5- year- old joined a group of his Kura St class­mates and Mana MP Kris Faafoi in a clean-up of Onepoto Do­main.

‘‘I just want to make it ti­dier. There’s too much rub­bish there,’’ he said.

Leon has his own blog and a grow­ing so­cial con­science, ac­cord­ing to his mother, Claire.

He or­gan­ised the clean-up as part of a home­work chal­lenge.

He wrote to Mr Faafoi in May, say­ing he of­ten saw rub­bish in the do­main.

‘‘I think you should get peo­ple to come and pick rub­bish up with you. I will help too.

‘‘You could give ev­ery­one a bis­cuit for help­ing. I like choco­late chip bis­cuits best,’’ Leon’s let­ter said.

Claire hoped the clean-up would be­come a reg­u­lar oc­cur­rence but, if not, she and her fam­ily would con­tinue to pick up rub­bish reg­u­larly any­way.
