Market Season
 
Hi <<First Name>>, we have just returned from the 25th anniversary of the Culverden Christmas Country Fete. It was a lucky break in the weather which resulted in a still blue sky day. A wonderful experience meeting stall holders and visitors alike from across the country.

We are excited to annouce the launch of ENCORE. These strong sturdy bags are crafted from inflatable offcuts and end-of-life carseat straps. Upcycled and one again new. Minimising waste. Each one unique.

And, in addition to our regular attendance at the Nelson Saturday Market, The Great Christmas Market is fast approaching on the 20th November at Founders Park. Your chance to start or finish your Christmas shopping with over 90 stalls involved.

ps: follow us on Instagram to see our daily inspiration

ENCORE Bags are the first in a line of products that have been a passion to produce. Working with a growing number of local businesses to reduce waste, and provide an alternative option than landfill. We aim to raise consumer awareness that there are better alternatives than dumping. 
These large bags are ideal for beach, gym, markets, camping holidays. We have a couple in our boot. Useful for your trip to the garden centre or holding wet sports gear and then they lay flat when not in use. 
Wipe clean, or wash with a hose. Simple, strong, durable. The colours vary depending on what is available, the strapping from expired car seats. "From project launch to September 2016, SeatSmart has diverted 3,865 car seats from landfill. Many people don't realise that car seats have a fixed expiry of between 6 and 10 years" which then provides us with our our wonderful handles. 

Currently these bags are available at the Nelson Markets, or email us for more information hello@thegreencollective.co.nz
DID YOU KNOW

20 to 50 million metric tons of electronic waste are generated worldwide every year. Only 11.4% of that is recovered for “recycling”, and of that amount, very little actually ends up getting recycled. The crew of 60 Minutes recently followed a container of e-waste that was supposed to be headed for recycling, that was instead illegally dumped in China. Toxic chemicals like cadmium, lead, mercury, chromium and polyvinyl chlorides from these discarded electronics contaminate poor Hong Kong communities like Guiyu, which has been found to have the highest levels of cancer-causing dioxins in the world.  And, the problem is getting worse by the day: electronic waste is the fastest-growing waste stream worldwide. Americans throw out about 130,000 computers every day, and over 100 million cell phones annually. Facts from Webecoist.
