The Reclaimed Christmas Forest

The Reclaimed Christmas Forest

We helped put some bottles on the big tree!!

The Reclaimed Christmas Forest is part of Unwrapping Christmas, 9-21 December, at Aotea Square

Over 5,000 recyclable plastic milk and soft drink bottles are illuminated and transformed into a sparkling forest comprising a seven metre tall Christmas tree surrounded by 12 smaller two metre trees.

The first installation of its kind to be constructed in NZ, the forest aims to make people more aware of what they are throwing away this Christmas and holiday period and it aligns with the Auckland Councilís vision for the city to have zero-waste status by 2040.

The initiative was inspired by Reclaim, and constructed by Architecture for Humanity, SKM, Engineers Without Borders, Reclaim and Brian Perry Civil. Construction materials were supplied by Reclaim, Frucor, VISY, Fonterra, Panda Visuals and ISL Industrial. Lighting and design were supplied by Oceania and Marcus McShane.

We hope you manage to see The Reclaimed Christmas Forest and you enjoy the experience.
