Making a difference today.


Climate change is a big deal especially for Kāpiti, situated so close to the ocean. Because of this, we are putting up billboards throughout the region! We want people – whether commuting to work or shopping in the mall – to keep the environment in the forefront of their minds.

We are aiming to encourage environmental awareness, emphasize the role individuals have in shaping the future of our planet, and empower people to take steps to make a difference.

What you can do!

Vote environmentally

Council has a big role to play in the future of our region

Start a conversation

Talk to people about the environment and help raise awareness

Minimize your waste

Kapiti’s landfills receive twice as much waste per person as the average around the country

Use public transport

New Zealand has more private cars than the US, Australia, or UK!
