Plastic Free Pantry, along with Waiheke Resources Trust and Island Waste Collective, is pleased to host The Rubbish Trip's popular presentation on zero waste living at Found Waiheke, followed by a short, facilitated opportunity to set your own challenges for Plastic Free July 2019!
Join Hannah and Liam, the Two No-Waste Nomads behind The Rubbish Trip, for an introduction to the practicalities and philosophy of waste reduction. Drawing on their own research and over four years of experience living zero waste, Hannah and Liam will guide you through the whys and the hows of life without a rubbish bin, including:
- What is the zero waste movement? Why is waste reduction important?
- How zero waste principles can revolutionise your perspectives on living and lifestyle, beyond your rubbish bin.
- Innovative examples of waste minimisation policy, practice and thinking from around the globe, and how these might inform community-level waste reduction.
- Tips for how you can reduce the rubbish in your life (including fun DIY household products, cosmetics, and other life hacks).
This event is free; everyone is welcome. The talk starts promptly at 6:45pm, but Found will be open for dinner and drinks, so feel free to come early, order something to eat and drink, nab a good seat/table, and settle in!
After the talk, stay on for an extra 15 minutes to hear from Plastic Free Pantry and Waiheke Resources Trust about their Plastic Free July 2019 programme of events and how you can get on board to cut back your plastic usage further.
The Rubbish Trip will be running a series of free events on Waiheke Island in the lead up to Plastic Free July, including a repeat of this talk on the morning of Sunday 23 June at the Waiheke Transfer Station, a workshop on DIY Toiletries & Cleaners at Greenspace on Tahi Road on the evening of Wednesday 26 June, and a zero waste cooking workshop at Jurassic Ridge Winery (date and time TBC).

This talk is part of The Rubbish Trip's travelling project, taking the zero waste message around Aotearoa New Zealand.
