Other Great Groups

We are not the only ones doing great things in Whangārei. Have a look below at some other great groups working towards making a ‘Real Clean Environment’. If you know of a group we have missed let us know their details via email (karen@force.org.nz) and we will add them.

Te Tai Tokerau Debris Monitoring Project

This project is a collaboration between local government (Northland Regional Council, NRC), education providers (NorthTec), NGOs, and passionate citizen-scientists in Northland.
The TTTDMP is part of a multi-layered approach that provides litter data for prevention, advocacy, and policy against litter in our environment.

Tai Tokerau TimeBank

Timebanking is a way to trade knowledge, skills and services within a community, without exchanging money. For every hour you spend doing something for someone else, instead of dollars, you earn time credits.  You can use these credits to buy another member’s time to get the services you need.
