Media release from Environment Associate Minister Eugenie Sage:
The Government is backing New Zealanders with innovative ideas to solve our waste crisis Associate Minister for the Environment Eugenie Sage said today as she opened a fresh round of Waste Minimisation Funding.
"I am excited to open this new round of Waste Minimisation Funding. The fund backs New Zealanders with innovative ideas for new projects that help tackle our mounting waste problem,” Eugenie Sage said.
“We’re inviting New Zealand businesses and community organisations to work with us to find new solutions to old problems. It's a chance to speed up our transition to an economy where products are designed to be fixed or their materials recovered and re-used so they don’t end up in the landfill. Doing this will keep precious resources in use much longer.
