the period of April to June 2017, the Care of Creation
group of the Catholic Parish of Napier held four Care of
Creation Eco Fairs which were based around the theme “How
to save environment and money”.
We chose 6 different subjects to present to our fellow
- Living on a Budget: 15 Great Ways to Save Money on
Your Grocery Shopping
- Environmentally Friendly Household Cleaners
- Insulating Your Home
- Power Saving
- Recycling in Napier
- Fertilise Your Garden by Having a Compost Heap
and/or a Worm Farm
The members of the group researched these subjects and
then created small information booklets as hand outs.
To share the information with our fellow parishioners, we
set up 4 different sessions, after a mass in each of the
three church communities. Here we had a table set up for
each subject and parishioners could come and find out what
we had learned. Reignier School also participated with a
table showcasing the school's environmental teaching and
The eco fairs are being repeated in 2018
with a few additional tables and leaflets.
