Kiwis have always been known for their ingenuity and innovative abilities, being able to fix anything with a bit of #8 wire. In the current tech-saturated world that old piece of wire just might not cut the mustard anymore so WWF and their partners have introduced 9Wire. 9Wire is a fund that local innovators can apply for if they're creating something to help solve the problems facing our environment.

In this video we caught up with three Kiwi start ups doing epic things to help the planet.
