Hi everyone,

I posted a week ago about the housing research we are doing. We have done fairly well filling the interview places for people living in medium density housing. We are particularly still looking for people living in low density housing - that is, people living in a house on a traditional quarter acre section (or larger). We want to interview a mix of renters and home owners.

As I mentioned in the last post, the interview will take approximately 45-60 minutes, and participants will receive a $25 supermarket voucher.

To express interest in taking part, please get in contact with us:
Dr. Morten Gjerde: morten.gjerde@vuw.ac.nz
Dr. Rebecca Kiddle: rebecca.kiddle@vuw.ac.nz

Queen memory foam mattress

Meg from Crofton Downs

In the interest of not dumping unnecessarily in the landfill, does anyone want this queen memory foam mattress. Has been used for the last 10years.

Has been used for the last 10years. The cover has seen better days, has some stains and is ripped on one side. The mattress itself is still in good nick - no rips or holes etc just not as firm as it used to be! Free to anyone who can collect this weekend, otherwise it’s going to the tip on Sunday. Let me know ASAP.

That Little Pop-up Store in Brooklyn last year...

Tania from Brooklyn

Hi Neighbour's,
you might remember this time last year a little Pop-Up secondhand store in the old video shop- Brooklyn that ran for approximately 8 weeks. Well that was ME...partnered with a tiny start-up agency that collected donated goods. If you visited the pop-up, you may remember how …View more
Hi Neighbour's,
you might remember this time last year a little Pop-Up secondhand store in the old video shop- Brooklyn that ran for approximately 8 weeks. Well that was ME...partnered with a tiny start-up agency that collected donated goods. If you visited the pop-up, you may remember how everything was priced $5 and less or free!

A percentage of the funds was donated to St Johns Ambulance an important partnership formed by the start-up collection agency. All remaining funds was returned to the start-up collection agency.

My involvement was purely voluntary to define this Social Experiment of mine that operated on two important principles "people and the planet". We created a vibe in Brooklyn that resonated with the local and wider communities. All year long I was asked the same question; "when will you do this again?" You see, before the pop-up shop opened I spent several months learning how this tiny start-up collection agency worked, or better yet how it wasn't working-sadly! So I got busy creating the systems that lead to the opening of the Pop-up shop. Suffice to say it was a huge success, but I quickly realised this social experiment had the potential to impact people in other meaningful and practical ways. The agency and I had goals which settled on different pages and we parted ways with a hug.

All this year I was busy building new partnerships and planning out the newly conceived pop-up secondhand store "Cyrcle-City Zero" a social enterprise that continues to put people and the planet at the centre of our operations. We bring artists and designers together to Reconfigure, Reshape and Reform the Unlikely, the Unloved and the Discarded with the Utmost care and compassion. We plan to open for sale in February, But we need YOUR HELP! Because we are still at the beginning of this exciting project we have run out of items to Re-Up!! And seeking all nature of donated goods...From clothes, household items, books, fabrics and furnishings and whatever else you don't want that could avoid landfill.
We will Redesign it and Return them to society, or use our resources and networks to Relocate them for you. At this stage we don't have the capacity to Re-do all electronics.
Am trading in my only chance to holiday this Christmas so hit me up if you can help or need our help to manage your Unwanted stuff. We can collect or allocate a drop off place just PM me, and I will get my contacts to you.

P.S. if you are or know someone creative that would love to get involved with his project PM me-absolutely love to hear from you.

Kindest regards,
Tania
