Go Eco shop
We want to make it easier for you to live in a way that does the least harm to the planet. That involves helping you make consumer choices that do little or no harm to the environment.
We have a shop that is stocked full of eco products that are not only kind to the earth but also really high quality products. Being green doesn't mean a lack of style or that you will miss out on any fun. Whether you are looking for everyday household necessities like detergent refills and dishbrushes, luxurious personal care products, beautiful gifts like delisiously smelly candles or Thunderpants, or children's books or toys, we've got it all.
Go Eco is a depot for electronic waste recycling. We take single use, rechargeable, coin lithium and silver oxide batteries; energy efficient light bulbs; toner cartridges; fluorescent tubes and electronic devices for recycling at WEC. All items are recycled ethically according to Ministry for Environment Standards. Many go to a social enterprise at South Waikato Achievement Centre in Tokoroa who employ disadvantaged people.
Please note, doing the right thing does cost a little more, please see the price list below for details.
Bring it in to our centre or we can pick up your E waste for an extra $15.
Warm, Healthy Homes
Home Performance Advice Service
Is your house making you sick?
New Zealand houses have a record of being poorly heated and inefficient at retaining warmth.
Although winters in the Waikato are short, homes that are cold, damp or poorly ventilated impact on our comfort and health, and that of our whānau.
The Home Performance Advice Service empowers people to create warm, healthy and energy efficient homes.
We also offer the service
- for rentals: Warrant of fitness for landlords. Support for both tenants and homeowners.
- for organisations: Workshops for your organisation or group.
Go Eco offers sustainability consulting, education services and assistance in sustainability-related projects.
Working with businesses of all sizes across the Waikato and Te Ika-a-Māui/North Island, we support clients to manage and reduce their environmental impacts as well as become more engaged with the communities they operate in.
