Say no to short car trips
Kiwis make an average of 12 short trips per household each week. By stretching our legs instead, we can slash greenhouse gas emissions.
We're encouraging Kiwis to consider climate-friendly modes of transport such as biking, scooting and walking when making trips under two kilometres.
Where will you start your climate change action?
Say no to wasted energy
Flip the usual way you think about climate change: climate action doesn’t need to be another burden to carry - in fact, it can be liberating and positive.
The Power of No
We’re empowering Kiwis to get rid of the stuff on the bottom of their to-do lists. Instead of wasting energy on things and stuff we don’t really want or need, we can give ourselves, and the planet, a breather.
