Meet the founders of GoodFor

James Denton, GoodFor’s founder, wanted to allow people an opportunity to make a difference with their shopping. GoodFor began in 2017 with a clear vision – to allow people the opportunity to shop waste-free. Now, having just celebrated their 3rd birthday and about to open their 7th store at Stoneridge, it’s clear that an ever-increasing number of Kiwis are backing them in their vision. GoodFor is a plastic-free refillery where you can stock up on pantry essentials and household items while avoiding the unnecessary packaging you often find in supermarkets. People simply bring in their own containers and jars, or use the store paper bags, to fill up with their usual groceries. “We want to change the culture around unnecessary packaging and waste,” explains Tessa Mak, GoodFor’s Marketing Manager. “We love to help educate people and provide them choices, both for their own health and for the environment.” James Denton, GoodFor’s founder, wanted to allow people an oppor…

How businesses can unite against COVID-19 and help breaking the cycle of child poverty

We all are suffering from COVID-19 and businesses are getting hit hard, but kids in poverty already had hardship before the COVID-19. Thankfully there are charity's like KidsCan: "Education is a child’s ticket out of poverty. It is how we will break the cycle of hardship, and it is at the core of everything KidsCan does. Food, a warm jacket, solid shoes, feminine hygiene products - these are things we want every child to take for granted. We are levelling the playing field, giving children whose families are struggling the same opportunity to learn as anyone else." That is why Neighbourlink NZ is going to donate half of the profits, earned by advertising,  to KidsCan. And you can help too by advertising on Neighbourlink or share this page with others. List your business or post an advertising on the blog, this way we all unite against COVID-19 and help breaking the cycle of child poverty at the same time. There is a Win-Win situation here, and we all can use a win right a…

Covid 19 coronavirus alert: New Zealand to move to alert 4 lockdown for next four weeks

Schools and non-essential services across New Zealand will be closed for at least the next four weeks after the Government put the country in nationwide lockdown to try to stop the spread of coronavirus. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern acknowledged the magnitude of the measures as she announced them today, but said they could save the lives of tens of thousands of New Zealanders. The country's coronavirus alert level would be raised to level 3 immediately. In 48 hours the alert level would be raised to level 4 - "stay at home" instruction, schools and businesses closed except essential services, severely limited travel - and will remain in place for a minimum of four weeks. The Prime Minister's Office has confirmed that Alert Level 4 will take effect from 11.59pm on Wednesday. Essential services would still be open at both alert levels, she said. "Kiwis - go home ... If in doubt, don't go out," Ardern said of level 4. WHAT LEVEL 4 MEANS Once level 4 is in pl…

A Sculpture for Chengdu: Te Ao Hurihuri – The Ever changing world

'Te Ao Hurihuri-The ever changing' world' It was an honour to represent Kirikiriroa Hamilton in China as part of the International Sister city collaboration. About the Sculpture 'Te Ao Hurihuri' - The Ever changing world A Sculpture for Chengdu 'Te Ao Hurihuri' is designed to appear as if made using the iconic New Zealand farming material, No'8 steel wire. A material which has come to symbolise the 'spirit of resourcefulness', of solving problems using lateral thinking and creatively working with what we have - all characteristics of the 'can-do' 'kiwi' attitude. The flowing lines sketch out a 'Tiki', a distinct icon of New Zealand and the wider Pacific. This work attempts to reflect the resilience, strength, dynamic energy and flare of Maori and also tells of 'Maui' the Polynesian hero and adventurer. The more formal structures represent the concept of 'Turangawaewae' a persons 'place to stand' and are in contrast with the flowing lines of the sculpture which…

5 Tips For Hosting A Successful Garage Sale

Whether you know them as garage or yard sales, you can successfully sell your old items by dragging them onto your lawn and placing stickers on them. While that's the simplified way that yard sales work, it's not far from what really happens. There's more research, marketing and planning that goes into a successful yard sale though. Planning Stages Before bringing all your items out onto your lawn or garage, you should be planning the date as well as bringing your neighbors in on the process. When you have more people selling items, you're likely to attract more people to the yard sale. Having a neighborhood sale is an event that will bring in tons of traffic. While some people might go to one or two yard sales on a Saturday, they'll definitely check out yours if there's a few on the same street. Clean and Organise Once you've decided on a weekend for your garage sale, start cleaning out your garage as well …

Be More Neighbourly

One of the best features of the world wide web is it enables us to connect with our neighbours in new ways. Establishing an online community is an effective way to communicate with those who live in the same area that we would not otherwise be able to. In today's society, many of us are too busy with work, life and family to interact with our neighbours in the traditional ways. And when many of us move around frequently for work or because we’re renters we don’t always have the longevity to establish meaningful relationships.   Whether it is asking for recommendations on restaurants to warnings about break-ins to promoting your business or services, participating in an online community is a great way to be more neighbourly, and being more connected.   Find your neighbour link and stay connected.
