NOTE: The release of this workshop has been delayed until Wednesday 6pm. We apologise for this, but we wanted to make sure it is just right. You'll still get 7 days to view it once live, so hang in tight it'll be here in no time!
Original workshop description follows:
The bad news: the amount of waste Kiwi’s send to landfills has increased by over 20% in the last three years.
The good news: we can change this – and it’s easy!
Whether you have a big family, live by yourself, or are flatting, this ONLINE workshop will equip you with the knowledge, strategies, and tools to significantly reduce your household’s waste production. (This workshop will be run in a first-of-it's-kind online format due to NZ's current Alert Level 4 lockdown status.
What’s more is you’ll receive a free gift pack full of waste minimisation products to get you started! These will be distributed when New Zealand is out of lockdown.
Note, you MUST be from Porirua to book tickets and attend this workshop, as it is funded by the local council.
For over 10 years, Kate Meads has been working with councils to deliver waste minimisation workshops to thousands of Kiwis throughout the country. Her passion for spreading awareness of often-ignored waste issues is rooted in her belief that “if everyone did just one small thing for our environment every single day, we will start to make a difference that will count”.
Kate’s workshops are real, down-to-earth, and practical. She likes to have a laugh and ensure everyone knows that she’s not perfect, nor does she expect them to be! Any change in the right direction is a good change. Waste is a serious and sometimes overwhelming issue, but there’s no point in feeling defeated when there’s so much we can do to combat it.
“Attended a Waste Free Living talk of Kate’s and loved it! Kate made it interesting and fun and I have adopted a few of her suggestions quite easily into my lifestyle!.” - Lainie, a recent attendee.
• Tickets grant you access to an exclusive Online link to a video workshop that will be emailed out to you, and accessible for a 7-day window! Again, you'll get a free gift pack with your ticket, but this won't be distributed until AFTER the lockdown period in NZ.
There are limited spaces and packs available.
