Experience Te Pokapū Tiaki Taiao O Te Tai Tokerau Trust

Working Towards a Brighter Future

 

Eco Centre

Bringing people and the environment together in the For North

The Eco Centre on Bank Street offers a central hub for Te Pokapū Tiaki Taiao o Te Tai Tokerau to connect with the community. It is a physical location for the Trust’s endeavours, local groups and shop and creates a means for continuous community engagement.


Drawing on a strong tradition of Kaitiakitanga or stewardship, the Eco Centre is at the heart of a growing network of locals trying to improve their footprint on the earth.


The Eco Centre shop stocks a range of sustainable and environmentally friendly, locally and nationally made products.


By supporting local businesses, we can develop a circular economy – “recycling” money back into our area. So, if you are a business with a focus on environmental or naturally made products, we would love to see how we can work with you.
