Did you know… A baby goes through around 5,500 nappy changes in their first 2 and a half years, but that doesn’t mean you have to send 5,500 nappies to landfill!
At this workshop, which is designed for expecting parents or those with a newborn in the home, you’ll be inspired, educated, and entertained. Plus, you’ll receive a starter pack of modern reusable nappies and more, when paired with what you’ll learn, will help you get started right away! The pack is worth $100, and this is all included in your $25 + fees ticket price! (Concession tickets available for $15)
“Went to a Waste Free Parenting Workshop and it's honestly changed my life! I loved how Kate made everything seem so easy and made us all have a good laugh. I have now started using cloth nappies and wish I had sooner! Thanks Kate for the motivation to make a difference” - Emily , a recent attendee.
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.
• The ‘Individual’ Ticket admits one person and you receive one free pack of waste minimisation products.
• The ‘Couples’ Ticket admits two people to the workshop and you will receive one free pack. So, if you’d like to get a pack each, make sure to book individual tickets for each attendee.
• Concession tickets at $15 available for holders of valid Student ID, Senior Gold, Kiwi able, and Community Services cards.
• There are limited spaces and packs available.
You are welcome to bring your baby to the workshop, but please be mindful that if they become upset you may need to pop out to settle them, so as not to distract other attendees. Therefore, (if possible) it is preferable that babies older than 6 months do not attend an evening workshop as it can be too late for them and cause disruptions. If you bring quiet toys to settle them this can be OK.
