WHAT'S BEEN HAPPENING

School Strike 4 Climate NZ

On Friday April 9th, 1000+ students from across Tāmaki Makaurau marched at the bottom of Queen Street to make their voice heard on our nations climate response. A further 6000+ students from around the country marched in their respective cities, demanding more to be done by our leaders to save future generations. School Strike 4 Climate was begun by climate activist Greta Thunberg, and has seen great success and backing by the rangatahi of Aotearoa in the years since its inception.

Grey Lynn Free Food Pantry

Our friends at Tart Bakery donated a number of sandwiches and pastries to the Grey Lynn Free Food Pantry this past week. If you or someone you know may need food, point them in the direction of this awesome community pantry located at 47 Ivanhoe Road, Grey Lynn.

If you ever have leftovers or extra food, consider donating it to the pantry before throwing it away or composting it. These awesome pantries are where food gets used, and many members of our community benefit from it greatly!

A huge thank you to Grey Lynn 2030 Waste Away for organising and supporting our community.

WHAT'S COMING UP

Use Your Own Cup Friday's all April

Single-use free focused organisations, UYO and Takeaway Throwaways have started an initiative this April called #Useyourowncupfriday to reduce the impact of single use on our planet.

As part of this, Grey Lynn 2030 Waste Away has invited local cafes Crumb, Tart Bakery and Ozone to join the #Useyourowncupfriday movement throughout April. These cafes all took part in last years hugely successful Cup Project, and are doing their part to help our earth once again, by getting rid of single-use coffee cups each Friday this month. If you forget your own cup, they have plenty of #KohaCups for you to use! Here's a list of all cafes involved.
