Reducing our Household Rubbish: The Zero Waste Approach
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. We’ll finish the event with a shared waste-free afternoon tea/potluck. Please bring a small kai to share that you have managed to prepare and transport without rubbish or packaging (i.e. avoid packaged foods, cling wrap, tin foil, baking paper etc.)
This talk is part of The Rubbish Trip’s travelling project, taking the zero waste message around Aotearoa New Zealand.
