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 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
