Help heal our Wetlands, join us in Britomart, along with iconic artist Flox.

Seventh Generation is recreating a wetland in Britomart’s Takutai Square and iconic Kiwi artist, Flox, will be creating a bespoke wetland mural. With every gold coin donation, visitors will receive Seventh Generation laundry detergent to take home.

With each donation, Flox will continue to bring to life the mural of a restored wetland and each panel will be auctioned at a later date on TradeMe, with funds going towards the restoration project.

Wetlands are the kidneys of the earth, filtering pollutants and contaminants that would otherwise wash into our rivers and oceans. Many of our native species and wildlife call them home, and today, only 10% of Aotearoa’s former wetlands remain*.

A partnership between The Million Meters Stream Project and Seventh Generation is set to drive action towards protecting this precious resource that is critical to the health of the earth. Many hands make light work.

One of Seventh Generation’s founding missions is to collaborate deliberately, as together we can achieve things we couldn’t on our own. Seventh Generation is committed to facilitating positive environmental change in the communities in which it operates.

The first project focuses on the restoration of the Rangihoua Wetland on Waiheke Island, working alongside the Waiheke Resources Trust. The team has the bold aim of fundraising $50,000 this summer to plant 4,000 native trees and shrubs, for the restoration of over 1,170 metres of wetland. For every donation received, Seventh Generation will provide matching funding, dollar for dollar up to $25,000.
