Loads of interest from Richie on our conservation work. Which Tim was happy to talk about
Bit of a special visitor recently; bearing an award; our Qualmark 100% Pure New Zealand trophy.
We’re back from Friday 3rd December - and we’re double vaxxed!  We’re looking forward to welcoming you back to our little slice of island paradise
And another award, on top of the earlier 100% Pure NZ!
Managed to grab a shot of all but one of the team following a recent day dedicated to helping some local charities. Wonder if we can get one of everyone before the end of 2021!
After a year of closed borders and cancelled business events up and down the country, it was brilliant to host Aussie and Kiwi buyers in town for the Meetings 2021 trade show #meetings2021
So what do you do when you work on an island that’s described as ‘paradise’ and you want to take the whole EcoZip team away for a well deserved break? You head to Rotovegas!
How cool is this! The next generation of ‘tree huggers’ - and a pretty epic birthday party at EcoZip!
We did another photo shoot on Sunday, prepping for new website. Here’s a behind the scenes shot of our brilliant volunteer talent
