‘New’ bid to ban fertiliser

Written by 

Greenpeace is pulling no punches in its ‘new’ campaign to ban synthetic nitrogen fertiliser and supposedly save New Zealand’s rivers.

It has put up provocative billboards on arterial roads around the country in time for the summer.

The no-frills billboards targeting fertiliser co-ops read: ‘Ravensdown and Ballance pollute rivers. #TooManyCows’.

Two of the billboards are a stone’s throw from the Ravensdown headquarters in Christchurch and Ballance’s in Mount Maunganui.
