Para Kore embraces Te Waipounamu
Recycling advocacy organisation Para Kore Marae Incorporated has secured support from the government’s Waste Minimisation Fund to expand its services to Te Waipounamu.
Kaihautū matua Jacqui Forbes says it will provide its Oranga Taiao programme to at least 45 rūnaka-marae and rōpū in and around Christchurch, Dunedin and Invercargill, reducing the amount of waste generated by at least 67 tonnes over the next three years.
She says caring for the taiao man not just reduces emissions and waste, but also understanding the systemic causes of the harm to Papatūānuku.
