About For Our Real Clean Environment


F.O.R.C.E. is a charitable trust aiming to empower the Whangārei district community to protect the natural environment through environmental and waste minimisation projects.

The organisation was formed in mid 2018 by Karen Lee and Nicholas Connop, a.k.a. The Whangārei Rubbish Wrangler. The pair have been organising the Love Whangārei Monthly Clean Ups since February 2018 and wanted to expand the type of projects they organise and support.

* The trust hope to build on what we have already begun and expand into other areas;
* Grow the clean up events and help others in their efforts.
* Work with other organizations to be able to gather data for statistical analysis.
* Providing education and equipment for local waste minimisation
* Encourage; community, upcycling, education, alternative and events.
But why?
Because it’s All of OUR Home.
Because it’s ALL of Our Future.
Because we’ve only got this ONE Earth.
Because we ALL need to make a difference
Why do we do it!? For Our REAL Clean Environment

*Cancelled* 19/07/2020 Otuihau/ Whangārei Falls Clean Up

Event Cancelled 19 July 2020, 10:00 – 12:00
Instead we encourage all volunteers to get out and support their neighbours and community to get cleaned up after the flooding.

We’re BACK! We are going to get started with a good basic one this month. Most of the area around the falls is looked after by the parks crew, but there are some areas that are a little harder to find. It shouldn’t be a huge amount, but there is usually more than we expect.

Glad to be able to get back out and at it again in the local area!

We will be wandering around the Otuihau/ Whangarei Falls picking up trash. We will be wandering in the bushes near the stream, along the steep banks along the walkways and around the rocks.
