Rummage Sale Auckland ZooSaturday 1 November 2014, 9:30am to 3:00pm

In partnership with Grey Lynn 2030 Waste Away, and as part of Conservation Week 2014 (1-9 November), Auckland Zoo is holding a Reuse to Reduce Market.

This year’s Conservation Week theme is ‘discover the world where you live’ and the market’s aim is to get people thinking and looking at ways to help keep the world on our doorstep beautiful.

According to Zero Waste New Zealand, surveys show that 30% to 50% of inorganic material is reusable or recyclable.

We are asking for donations of household goods to sell, such as furniture, kitchenware, bric-a-brac, crockery, books and fabric/textiles/blankets. NB All items in good condition please.

Money raised during the market will go to Auckland Zoo conservation and Grey Lynn 2030’s Waste Away Project.

On the day there will be stalls with local businesses talking about their products which are all made from and inspired by reused materials.

Information will also be available about the many conservation projects Auckland Zoo is involved in.
