Refilling, repairing and remaking - Hopper Home

From Nine To Noon, 9:43 am on 18 December 2020

Wellington's Hopper Home Eco Shop is a bulk food store and refillery just off Cuba Street, where customers bring their own containers to fill up on household bulk goods, from local suppliers. It also boasts a meeting space which hosts regular clothes swaps, and repair cafes - where people can bring broken items to be fixed, or clothing to be mended. A group of volunteers has also been busy handmaking sustainable Christmas crackers. Kathryn meets the social enterprise's director Susie Brow and store manager Francine Corhumel.
