Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery school held discussions about litter problems they see and what they’d like to do about them, the girls came up with the idea of making cotton/beeswax sandwich wraps to sell to try and replace all the ‘glad wrap’ being used in lunchboxes and at the cafeteria on campus.

There is a higher goal to try and persuade the on-site cafeteria (part of University of Canterbury) to use ‘Happywraps’ (the name of their product) to sell with their sandwiches rather than wrap them in plastic wrap.  The idea is similar to the sustainable takeaway coffee cups that people can buy instead of using cardboard cups each time.   There are also plans to sell the wraps at a local preschool that is having a ‘litter-less’ lunchbox focus this term.
