World Environment Day in Central Otago [Wed, 19 June 2013]

  • World Environment Day in Central Otago -

Nigel Wilson spent most of World Environment Day at Central Otago WasteBusters creating a view of Old Man Range. Organised by Central Otago Reap and MAD4CO (Making A Difference For Central Otago), events included tours of the Wastebusters depot, Bokashi composting demonstrations and videos detailing what happens to material once it leaves the recycling centre.

The bleak yet strikingly beautiful painting being generated, contrasts sharply with the WasteBusters surrounding of cast off objects and materials (bottles, paper, plastics, furniture). Our fragile environment and its finite resources come into focus.  We learn and act. World Environment Day is celebrated on 5 June and MAD4CO generate a week of activities and learnings each year.
