Congratulations to Henry Coyle, our April Tidy Kiwi Volunteer of the Month

Congratulations to Henry Coyle, our Tidy Kiwi Volunteer of the Month for April.

Henry, based in Taupō, is a down-to-earth person keen on recycling and keeping his community as litter free as possible. On a recent clean up, he took it upon himself to collect three big rubbish bags and a TV that were discarded near the motorway, and recycled what he could from this.

For him, it all started with a walk “where there was more rubbish on the walkway than greenery and the dog was more interested in possible left overs discarded, than the bush and natural exploring.

Once you start noticing litter it’s hard to stop, so Henry started being a Tidy Kiwi across all aspects of his daily life — from helping other tenants in his apartment block to recycle correctly, to collecting litter daily from a walkway near his home and helping implement a recycling scheme at his workplace, which in just a few short weeks saved over a dozen 20L bins of recyclables going to landfill.

He’s doing a quiet but effective crusade to encourage his workmates and friends to consider, and be proud of, their local environment simply by helping Keep New Zealand Beautiful. Nice one Henry!

Whakamihi  – congratulations! As this month’s Tidy Kiwi Volunteer of the Month, Henry has  received a Keep New Zealand Beautiful merchandise pack and a Resene paint voucher to help him continue his beautification efforts, as well as being entered into this year’s Beautiful Awards
