Ngā mihi nui ki Para Kore for sharing their Papakupu Para Kore (Glossary for Zero Waste), which they have compiled with Ian Christensen from He Kupenga Hao i Te Reo Māori . This glossary contains all the te reo Māori words you should need when communicating about waste minimisation. The words in the glossary were researched and consulted on nationally, with the aim of helping groups, councils and communities to expand the usage of te reo Māori. Para Kore acknowledges that for some terms, in some locations, local dialect should take preference.
This version of the Papakupu Pare Kore was updaed May 2019 so replaces older versions.
