However, not every retailer has

Harrison Wong, an employee

only at about 60 per cent of pre-

I was born in the deep south, Tuatapere, gateway to Fiordland.

I grew up among some stunning scenery but it wasn’t really until I

travelled the world that I saw just how special it was.

I am a Christchurch based, self-taught artist painting semi-abstract

landscapes that are earthy and textural. My paintings are inspired

by New Zealand landscape, particularly Central Otago, Mackenzie

Country and Canterbury.

My works are descriptive of landforms shaped by both natural

forces and man. Weathering, erosion and human activity lead to an

ever-changing terrain.

There is often a touch of both flora and water in my paintings that

allude to the idea of the land sustaining life.

The paintings have layers of colour and texture through

which I chisel, scrape, eliminate, add back and interact

with the painting to reveal the essence of a landscape.

I hope painting our NZ landscape may encourage the

viewer to recognise the beauty of the land and to feel

responsibility for looking after it.

on the rise

• From page 1

ChristchurchNZ general

manager of strategy, insight

and policy Anna Elphick

said increased spending was

encouraging but there is still some

way to go.

“There’s been strong growth in

many suburbs including Papanui

and New Brighton. Pent up

demand and eased restrictions on

movement have provided some

buoyancy to the levels of retail

spending, but we are yet to see

how long the sugar rush will last.

We know there are still challenging

times ahead and any return to

normal will take a long time.

“The impact of border closures

is also being felt with a 58 per cent

reduction in international visitor

spend in Christchurch during

June, compared to the same time

last year.

“It was positive to see

spending by residents in the

central city increase by 13 per

cent on June 2019, going some

way to compensate for the loss

of international visitor spend

which makes up a relatively large

proportion of central city spend,”

said Elphick.

Students’ bid to reduce plastic waste

• By Bea Gooding

AS MILLIONS of plastic bottles

make their way into landfills

and natural environments, six

young entrepreneurs have come

up with a bubbly way to tackle

the issue.

The year 13 young enterprise

students at Villa Maria College

will soon release Eliminate – an

effervescent disinfectant tablet

for water bottles in a bid to encourage

families to reduce their

single-use plastic waste.

Charlotte Restieaux said the

project, with Hannah Shallcrass,

Kaitlin Willetts, Ella McHerron

and Ella Dolan, of Harewood,

was aimed at “busy people” who

often reached for single-use bottles

instead of cleaning the one

they already had.

“We realised a lot of us are

busy and we don’t often have

enough time to properly clean

our drink bottles,” she said.

“We recognised the issue of

single-use bottles and how convenient

it was to chuck it out and

get another one.”

She said the process was

simple – by placing the tablet in

a bottle with water, which will

“fizz” and disinfect the inside,

followed by rinsing.

The homemade tablets

comprised of common bacteriakilling

cleaning agents including

hydrogen peroxide and baking

soda which will also be suitable

for reusable bottles.

Charlotte and her team

believed it will provide a convenient

way to clean on-the-go,

reducing the chances of purchasing

a new bottle.

Even though plastic bottles

could be recycled, at most,

only 30 per cent of which was

eventually recycled in New


With a portion of waste

winding up in waterways and

beaches, the group were committed

to donating 10 per cent of

profits to the Sustainable Coastlines


Said Charlotte: “A lot of

clean up the beaches, so we felt

that our mission aligns with

“We want to make people

going into our world and about

change,” said Charlotte.

Eliminate was now in

production, she said, which was

due to be released this week.

a serious cardiovascular risk factor

that is known to cause damage and

plaque in the blood vessels. It can also

increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard

researchers found

a 34% decrease

risk of vision

loss in a study

of participants

aged 40+ who

supplemented with

B12. Another study

linked a higher risk of hearing loss in

subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12

appears to be our body’s ability to absorb

it declining with age as the digestive

system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux

medication and other drugs further

reduce B12 absorption. The good news

is B12 in the form of Methylcobalamin

sublingual tablets that are dissolved in the

mouth and thru bypassing the digestive

tract have been shown to effectively raise

B12 levels in the body.
