Learn the importance of recycling and reusing at a range of creative and interactive workshops.
Kids and their families are invited to attend free workshops at where they can create recycled planters.
“For more than 10 years, Bayfair has revolutionised the way a shopping centre operates environmentally, from recycling greywater, rainwater and food court packaging to reducing waste to landfill. The centre aims to impart this knowledge on the younger generation,” says Centre Manager Steve Ellingford.
“Over the past six weeks, Bayfair has been preparing for these workshops by collecting milk bottles, lids and other decorative features which will be used to design the planters.”
A sensory workshop has also been designed for kids who are oversensitive to certain environments – often finding common sounds and crowds overwhelming.
This will be held before trading hours with extra staff available to create a soothing and stress-free experience. Bayfair has hosted multiple sensory events in the past to make the centre accessible to all.
Steve says Bayfair wants to educate the kids of today to make sustainability, in the form of reusing and recycling, a priority in their everyday lives.
There will be three workshops per day, which will run from Monday to Friday from July 16-20. The sensory workshop will be held on the July 18 from 8am-9am. For further information and registration, please visit: www.bayfair.co.nz
