It comes as no surprise that plastic bags are an environmental nightmare. According to Sustainable Coastlines, of the worst offenders in the marine environment, the humble plastic bag accounts for 8.2% of all rubbish found on New Zealand coastlines.

It’s no big secret that single-use coffee cups are wasteful. Most of the traditional disposable cups used by cafes aren’t even recyclable in New Zealand, even if their packaging says so.

If you hate waste, make sure your local is using compostable alternatives, or go one step further and bring your own cup along - one of our accredited businesses Flight Coffee Hangar in Wellington will even...

One of the biggest threats to bees is exposure to toxic chemical pesticides through insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides used in industrial agriculture.

Organic farming standards, via certification prohibit organic...
