Attend Kate Mead’s longest-running and most popular workshop to become inspired and entertained about ways you can minimise waste in your home whilst babies are around!
What else? You will receive a free pack full of waste minimization products, including cloth nappies, valued at $80.
Did you know… That each baby goes through approximately 5500 nappy changes throughout their childhood? That’s a lot of single-use items being thrown out across New Zealand!
IMPORTANT: If COVID-19 Alert Levels change and mean this event cannot take place in person, you will be provided a video version of the workshop, and we can send your gift pack out at no additional cost!
For over 10 years, Kate Meads has been travelling the country delivering waste minimisation seminars, with topics ranging from cloth nappies, right through to re-usable coffee cups. Kate is extremely passionate about her work and believes that education and the sharing of knowledge is one of the most powerful tools we have in the battle against waste. Kate strongly believes 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 down-to-earth humorous kiwi approach to waste minimisation proves that you don’t have to turn your house upside down or drastically change the way you live to cut back on the amount of rubbish you throw away.
Our aim is to get everyone to make just one change in their day-to-day life. The reality is, if we all just did something different each day i.e Taking your own cup for your coffee or even just recycling correctly - collectively we would make a massive difference.
Kate also prides herself on being “real”. She often jokes with her audiences about the fact that she isn’t perfect, nor does she expect anyone to be. This presentation is perfect for people who don’t know where to start, as well as those who want to learn more about where their waste goes and what they can do about it.
“Attended the Waste Free Parenting workshop in Havelock North a couple of days ago. To tell you the truth, I hadn't expected it to be such an entertaining evening - there were tears of laughter - but Kate has a great way of bridging the brain-gap between the enormous magnitude of the waste problem, and the genuine differences that can be made by seemingly small individual choices. Highly recommended.” - Deanna, a recent attendee
The ‘Individual’ Ticket admits 1 person, and you receive 1 free pack of waste minimization products.
The ‘Couples’ Ticket admits 2 people to the workshop, but you will receive 1 free pack. So, if you’d like to get a pack each, make sure you book individual tickets!
There are limited spaces and packs available.
Bringing your baby to the workshop is fine, but please be mindful that if they get upset you may need to pop out and settle them. It is preferable not to bring babies older than 6 months to an evening workshop as it can be too late for them, and disruptions can be quite distracting for other attendees. If you bring quiet toys to settle them this can be ok.
We don’t need you to print off your tickets, as we have the ability to scan your ticket from your smartphone or device as you arrive at the workshop.
Please arrive 15 minutes before the workshop start time, to collect your free pack and find a seat.
