KO WAI MATOU - WHO ARE WE?
Reducing Waste, increasing Kaitiakitanga
EcoSolutions is one of CBEC's enterprises which focuses on positive climate action and education throughout Northland, implementing behaviour change in our homes, businesses, schools and local community throughout Northland.
EcoSolutions was formed over 17 years ago as a community environmental hub that provided advice on minimising waste and protecting the local environment from activities that cause pollution and degradation.
EcoSolutions' focus is positive climate action through encouraging behaviour change, with a focus on how we perceive and deal with waste.
Education programmes are delivered to schools, businesses and community groups in an effort to live more sustainably.
We increase Kaitiakitanga, caring for our environment, through examining the waste hierarchy with a large focus on composting and the 6 R’s: reduce, reuse, repair, re-purpose, rethink and finally recycle.

Thank you Anouk for your presentation to the Bay of Islands/Pewhairangi DOC staff yesterday. The meeting was well-attended and generated wide-ranging discussions that were stimulated by your depth of knowledge about and passion for the topic. The practical wax wrap session at the end really engaged staff that ordinarily are not that interested in the topic. We are looking forward to the next session.

We are a small team in a very small office and yet we were not doing so well on the recycling front. Eco Solutions helped us to see where we needed improvement and helped us to get all our systems in place. We were super pleased to get our first award! We can now show it off with pride and are pleased to be seen to be doing the right thing.
