Trash to Trade Competition
Entries now open to Trash to Trade Competition April 2018
Trash to Trade is an exciting new community initiative that encourages everyone to give up-cycling a try. In conjunction with participating business associations, Grey Lynn 2030 is working with sustainable businesses and the education sector to encourage people to upcycle items that would normally go out in the inorganic collection. Trash to Trade is about moving from discarded to desirable, merging business waste, creativity, business start-ups and upcycling.
The Trash to Trade Competition invites social entrepreneurs and artisans, as well as the public, to develop a new product from business waste that others are happy to buy or rent.
There are 3 categories to enter:
This category is for young people under the age of 19.
Businesses and Established Artisans
This category is for established businesses or artisans who already have a presence in the community.
This category is for up-and-coming artisans and business school students, who have never previously showcased or sold their work. Establishing both price and demand for the upcycled product is a measure of success.
