Cleaning up the Hauraki Gulf

04 March 2019

Stormwater360 is proud to be part of the Sustainable Business Network GulfX initiative to help protect and restore the Hauraki Gulf.

 

The aim of the project is:

  • keeping plastic from our harbour waters. This will be achieved by reduction, recycling and redesign. It will also be specifically targeted with the promotion of storm water drain LittaTraps to keep rubbish from entering the sea
  • tackling heavy metal pollution, particularly through transport. This will be achieved by accelerating the shift to smarter transport solutions. It will be specifically targeted by exploring how to reduce the copper content of brake pads for commercial vehicle fleets 
  • restoring native bush to the region’s waterways. This will be done by continuing to extend the work of Million Metres Streams projects across the waterways feeding the Gulf

In an effort to protect the Gulf, Stormwater360 are offering SBN members a discount on the purchase of LittaTraps to stop plastic reaching the waterways via the stormwater drains.
