Love Your Water
As a major sponsor of Sustainable Coastlines (SC), an award-winning charity that engages volunteers and community groups in cleaning up New Zealand’s coastline and waterways, we’ve already backed three riparian planting projects in our region. Part of SC’s ‘Love Your Water’ programme, the trio of projects are all about protecting precious ecosystems and ensuring the water that eventually enters our oceans is as healthy as it can be.
Riparian planting projects like this brings multiple benefits, from filtering water and preventing erosion to moderating water temperature and providing food for aquatic insects. “We know that planting is one of the best things we can be doing for our environment,” says APL Executive Director, Sustainability, Mikayla Plaw.
