Karma police: Love NZ presses go on recycling campaign

Karma police: Love NZ presses go on recycling campaign

Recycling really should be second nature by now, but it doesn't take much more than a look around to gauge the veracity of that claim as truth. In an effort to fill up those 1000-odd recycling bins all around the country, Love NZ has just pushed play on a six-week campaign, It's A Karma Thing, exhorting Kiwis to 'do the right thing' and earn points they can then redeem for prizes.

There's ever increasing evidence of the positive impact ‘serious’ games can have on health outcomes. And a pioneer in this field is the Sparx video game, created by Kiwi researchers to tackle teenage depression using cognitive behavioural therapy, packaged in a fun and appealing way.
