The Kapiti Greenest Street competition is underway and the Te Roto Road whanau has a lot of work to do. Our average environmental footprint is 3.5 Earths. Converted to land area, the collective footprint is equivalent to 18 Otaki Racecourses. Clearly there's room for improvement!
Fortunately we're up for the challenge and there's nothing like a street BBQ to get the ideas flowing. Already we're fired up by the sense of community spirit that's developed and the generosity that is pouring out from everyone involved. So now we have to bottle it up into a plan so we can capitalise on the quick wins and have the sustenance required for our more ambitious ideas. I can see we're going to need a few more street meetings to keep everyone motivated. Oh well, it's all for a good cause!
