With Plastic Free July just around the corner, Island Waste Collective, along with Greenspace and Plastic Free Pantry, are pleased to host The Rubbish Trip's popular presentation on zero waste living at the Waiheke Transfer Station!
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? Why should be bother to reduce our rubbish?
- 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. Zero waste morning tea snacks will be provided.
The Rubbish Trip will also be running several other events during June on Waiheke, including workshops on DIY Zero Waste Toiletries & Cleaners and Zero Waste Cooking. So keep your eyes peeled on their event listings on Facebook so that you don't miss out!
This talk is part of The Rubbish Trip's travelling project, taking the zero waste message around Aotearoa New Zealand.
