There is so much wrong with the voraciousn­ess with which we consume and throw away goods, shopping has become a guilt-inducing minefield. Thankfully a bunch of social enterprise­s are working to make positive changes in the world and they’re coming together at a pop-up shop in Ponsonby Central. There’s Make Give Live who, with each beanie purchased, will donate one to someone in need; the Pallet Kingdom, intercepti­ng used pallets on their way to landfill and turning them into stylish furniture; Charity Tea, which for every container of tea sold feeds a child in need; and several other ethically minded vendors. So, if you’re going to shop, do it at the Good Pop-up Store and do good at the same time.

Today, 9am-4pm. Tomorrow, 10am-3pm. Ponsonby Central, 136 Ponsonby Rd, Ponsonby.
