Supermarket sets its
sights on going green
Green team: Richard Duncan at Taihape New World is just one of the staff
responsible for baling cardboard and plastic wrap that gets sent to C H H
Awapuni for recycling. In the first 12 months 42,690kg was sent. About one
tonne per week of cardboard is backloaded to Awapuni.

The Carter Holt Harvey initiated
Rata Sustainable Certification Pro-
gramme encourages recycling and
since joining, Taihape New World
has gone further and appointed a
''Green Team'' made up of six staff
members from various departments
looking at how they can reduce
''We are concerned about our
impact on the environment,'' owner/
operator Conrad Wong says. ''We
believe the right thing to do is
recycle our natural resources and
help make New Zealand a good
place for our children to live in.''
Leader of the Green Team Leanne
Easby said one of the first priorities
will be to look into how the team can
reduce the amount of packaging
used in store.
''Shoppers will be encouraged to
choose a reusable bag or cardboard
box to pack groceries and there will
be a bin located in the store where
customers can recycle their plastic
''We hope to encourage our
shoppers to support us in becoming
a more sustainable business.''
She said other packaging options
are available throughout the store.
Mr Wong says methods of saving
investigated. The fluoro tubes that
were the main lighting in the walk-
in freezer have now been replaced
with LED which give a better result
whilst using less electricity. A
power factor corrector that reduces
peak loads has been installed as
''To be sustainable and profitable
the business needs to become more
efficient by reducing costs and
eliminating waste wherever poss-
ible,'' Mr Wong says.
The team is interested in hearing
any ideas shoppers have on ways to
become more sustainable.
''Please feel free to contact us with
any suggestions you may have,''
says Leanne Easby.

Cottage to be opened
in all its new glory
By JOCELYN FANNIN
The refurbishment of the tiny cot-
tage originally situated in Tui
Street and for many years lived in
by Taihape teacher Mrs Gwen
Archer, now situated in the grounds
of Taihape Museum, is to be
officially opened March 17.
Built about 1910, the cottage was
being prepared for demolition when
District Councillor the late Derek
Cottrell felt it should go to the
museum. A $25,000 J B S Dudding
Trust grant was made in 1991 for
the restoration project.
A rose from the section was also
planted and the cottage will be
known as Rose Cottage in memory
of Rose Johnson a keen museum
member at that time.
Increasing interest is being
shown in the museum with 12
members on the committee and 15
volunteers rostered to open iton
weekends and during school and
''We are an active committee.
There is alway work to be done,
cataloguing memorabilia and restor-
ing machinery. We have recently
purchased a laptop which will allow
the public much easier access to our
large collection of photos,'' said
member Marjorie Doole.
Work has been carried out to
restore the cottage to its original
glory with gongoleum on the floor
and newspaper wall-coverings. A
path to the front door has been laid
and furniture of the period will be
placed. The museum has recently
received a collection of original
photographs, which are in better
condition than the museum copies.
