Getting behind the planet Foodstuffs Wellington is getting behind this year's World Environment Day on June 5 by giving away free reusable bags at New World, Pak 'n Save and Four Square stores across the Lower North Island. The World Environment Day celebration began in 1972, and has become one of the key ways the United Nations stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment by encouraging political attention and action. Foodstuffs' Wellington mar- keting manager, Roy Scoon, said the company was proud to sup- port the initiative. Care of the environment is an important issue for many Kiwis. As a 100 per cent New Zealand- owned and operated company, we felt it was important that all our New World, Pak 'n Save and Four Square stores get involved and do their bit for the environ- ment,'' he said. There are so many things all of us can do to help the environ- ment. Something as easy as taking a reusable bag with you to the supermarket can really make a difference by reducing the number of plastic bags used overall. We hope giving away these reusable bags as part of World Environment Day will help some Kiwis take their first step into a more sustainable lifestyle.'' Foodstuffs' offer is valid from Monday while stocks last. The kids who do know it all Top class: A worldly foursome from Fergusson Intermediate reigned supreme at a recent Upper Hutt City Library quiz. Best of the best, from left, were Tim Horton, Kieran Sutton, Paige Vaughan-Peita and Alex Elzenaar. The ''Everything you know about the World'' quiz for students from school year 7 to 10 was the finale to New Zealand Post Children's Book Awards celebrations at the library. Chris Upton, the new city council chief executive, filled the role of quizmaster for the event, which featured teams from Heretaunga and Upper Hutt Colleges, Hutt International Boys' School and Fergusson Intermediate. The Fergusson Intermediate year 8 students took out top honours, with the Upper Hutt College year 9 and 10 combinations finishing second and third. People disaster-ready When Kathryn Nankivell of Hutt Valley Emergency Management spoke to Upper Hutt Save the Children members at their special Mother's Day morning tea, she said it was encouraging to know that 70 per cent of Upper Hutt citizens are disaster-prepared. Apart from earthquakes, the most likely emergencies in the Hutt Valley would be caused by flooding, vegetation fire and chemical spillage. In any of these events civil defence centres would be set up in parts of the city as required by residents. As shown in the recent Christchurch earthquake, police, fire, urban rescue and medical personnel would be on the scene. But it is important for indivi- duals to take responsibility for themselves by, first of all, and most importantly, storing enough water for three days or more as well as non-perishable food, tor- ches, a radio, a first-aid kit, medicines and other vital items. More information is available in the Wellington Regional Emerg- ency pamphlet available from Upper Hutt City Council. Police find no alcohol offending Upper Hutt police are targeting alcohol-related offending with a series of undercover operations. Young volunteers recently took part in a controlled exercise, named Operation Unite, to try to buy alcohol at a number of li- censed premises. They were sup- ervised by police during the oper- ation. No Upper Hutt firm sold liquor to under-aged shoppers. It was part of an alcohol harm reduction campaign led by New Zealand and Australian police. Sergeant Shane Benge says they are working with businesses to make sure they are aware of their obligations under the law.
