Yesterday at the SIFT July Board Meeting the Trustees voted in a new trustee. We welcomed Dairne Poole to the team which now brings the trustee numbers up to 5. Hopefully, in the near future we will do a little post on her and her thoughts for SIFT but for the moment we welcome her as a great new addition to help SIFT achieve its objectives.
Here are a few cool links we have found this week:
- Gorgeous re-designed glass bottles from Transglass via ThisIsGlamorous.
- Love these simple yet stylish reusable food storage systems via ReNest.
- The MfE announced that it will be funding a $700,000 grant for Envirocomp (nappy composting) through the Waste Minimisation Fund to develop a plant in Wellington – go Envirocomp!
- Heard of Poetry Bombing? Check out this great video of a poetry bomber in Miami, USA via Good USA.
- Another bit of stylish design – this time a flat pack DIY beehive (via ReNest).
- Slow Living Essentials looks into Sow.Give.Grow- leaving packets of seeds around the neighbourhood/city for people to take – great idea for expanding and growing the use of own-grown food. More here.
Have a great waste free weekend.
