On March 14th Ecofest North hit the ground running with Ray White North Shore by its side. As well as financial support, the Ray White North Shore zone got their hands dirty by joining the 40+ volunteers who ran the Ecofest Family Fun Day held on Eskdale Reserve, behind the Kaipatiki Project Environment Centre. Over 1,500 guests and participants came from all over the North Shore to partake in a range of fun environmental activities, aimed at educating and inspiring all to live a happier, greener way of life. A heart-warming video of the day can be viewed by clicking here.
In addition, branches have lent further support by hosting Eco-design seminars in their offices, as well as getting dirt beneath their nails in a community planting day, and supporting a beach clean-up at Long Bay Regional Park. Festival Manager Toni van Tonder says, ‘The Ray White North Shore collective has been hugely supportive from the start. Participation in the 96+ Ecofest events has doubled on last year and this is due to the commitment and energy of Ray White. With their help we’ve become more ambitious, and by kicking the whole thing off with Ray White beside us during the opening day event, this has proven to be a truly successful collaboration.”
Ecofest North is an annual event co-ordinated by the Kaipatiki Project. Further information can be found at kaipatiki.org.nz/ecofest.
