Here at Curtain Clean we are big advocates of sustainability. Clean, re-use, recycle!

Help us reduce waste and have fun doing it with our little tutorial on how to turn a T-shirt into a re-usable bag.


You’ll need:
• Old t-shirt – The thicker the fabric, the sturdier the bag• Sharp scissors, preferably fabric scissors
• Washable marker (optional)

Step 1: Cut the sleeves off so it resembles a singlet.

Step 2: Cut the neckline area into a circle or oval – these will become our handles. Trace a bowl to get a perfectly round circle.

Step 3: Turn the t-shirt inside out. Determine where you want the bottom of the bag to be and trace a line across. Keep in mind that depending on the fabric used, your tote is likely stretch and become longer when it’s filled with stuff.

Step 4: Cut slits from the bottom of the shirt up to the line marking the bottom of your bag. Keep the slits small to prevent large gaps in the bottom of the bag. You’ll want to cut both the front and back layers together because they need to match up for the next step.

Step 5: Tie the front and back fringe together in knots and turn the shirt right side out. For extra embellishments, tie the straps (handles) in knots, or tie bits of t-shirt scrap to the top.

P.S. We'd love to see your creations!!

During this morning’s power cut we were able still to deliver drinking water across the Wellington region and South Wairarapa. Reservoirs were able to manage the demand, and storage is recovering in reservoirs now that treatment plants are operational.

For Featherston and Greytown residents, as the reservoir that supplies your area is taking longer to recover, we would appreciate it if you could reduce your water consumption where you can. We’ll share another update when you can use water normally again. Thank you for your patience.

Power has been restored to the region, and the majority of the pumping stations and all treatment plants are back online. We are investigating the wider network to ensure everything is operating as normal.

We continue to ask the wider Wellington region to be mindful of their water consumption, and ask South Wairarapa residents to continue to reduce their water consumption and avoid flushing their toilets. Reducing demand allows the assets to operate without added pressure when they come back online.

All of the critical assets including pumping stations and treatment plants have generators in operation as part of our resilience plan. We also have mobile generators available for other pumping stations.

Willis Street works nearing connection stage

The first stage of the work to connect a new wastewater pipe in Willis Street, replacing the temporary overland pipe installed after the original tunnel collapse in December, is expected to be complete by the end of March.

Wellington Water Group Manager Tonia Haskell says the final stage of pipe laying along Willis Street is being completed using trenchless methods to lay the pipe underground and below existing services at the Ghuznee Street end.

“This means we’re now approaching one of the last and most complex parts of the job, to connect the new permanent underground pipe to the network and decommission the overland pipe along Willis Street.

“To achieve this we will need to shut down the wastewater pumping stations close to the harbour that send flows up to and along the overland pipe. We’ve been doing a lot of planning for this as it is risky and at all costs, we want to avoid spilling any wastewater into the harbour.

“We need low tide, dry weather, low wastewater flows and ensuring that all existing city wastewater storage is empty so it can take the flow. We also have contingency planning in place including sucker trucks, and ensuring the old interceptor is clear to support management of the wastewater flows.”

Ms Haskell says all this is expected to take place in the week of 23 March pending having optimal conditions.

“If we get heavy rain for example, we wouldn’t be able to turn off the pump stations to disconnect the overland pipe due to the risk of overflowing in the harbour. So in that instance the work would be delayed.”

This phase of the work is expected to take between 6-8 hours, however, it will require Dixon Street between Willis and Victoria Street to be closed to through traffic for up to three days. This is to allow the underground pipe to be exposed, the connection to be made, and then the road to be reinstated. One lane of Willis Street will be opened for for local traffic, travelling one-way from Ghuznee Street entrance.

The pipe ramp will still be in place so the road cannot be used as a main thoroughfare and there will still be no parking along the section of Willis Street between Ghuznee and Dixon streets. Traffic controllers will be onsite to assist throughout.

“Once the permanent pipe is connected, we can remove the overland pipe and bring in contractors to reseal the road. We are talking with Wellington City Council now about reinstatement of the road, which we’d expect to take one to two days. The focus will then shift from Willis Street to laying new pipe in the adjoining slipway down the motorway. This is expected to be complete mid-year but will have minimal traffic impacts.”

Meanwhile, investigative drilling work is being done to determine the best approach to sealing the tunnel at the separate Dixon Street site.

“Work to drill the final boreholes will continue this week and once that is completed, we’ll be able to do a thorough geotechnical assessment of the ground conditions to allow us to complete design work.”

The Government wants to set a 15 km/h speed limit for e-scooters, as part of a raft of changes to make footpaths more pedestrian friendly.
Pedestrians and people using wheelchairs would have right of way, while people on e-scooters and "other transport devices" would be allowed to use cycle lanes. The changes will be put out to consultation, ending on April 21. What's your view of the proposed changes?
