Zero Waste My Pantry! with The Rubbish Trip

The ReMakery, with the support of Forward and For Our Real Clean Environment, is pleased to host a hands-on workshop with The Rubbish Trip about how to make easy snacks, treats and pantry staples from unpackaged ingredients.

Want to reduce your waste at home but not sure where to start? Often a substantial chunk of the waste in household rubbish bins is food and drink-related (whether the packaging food/drink comes in, or scraps and leftovers). So, this workshop goes straight to the heart of the issue, covering tips for low-waste food shopping, how to prepare everyday food from scratch using unpackaged ingredients, and how to avoid food-related rubbish when you're out and about. We'll all cook together with whatever ingredients we can forage packaging free, and generally have a great old time!

Our focus is on easy, affordable, nutritious versions of the kinds of packaged 'convenience' food and drink that most people consume regularly, including cereal, spreads, muesli bars, biscuits, crackers, dips, sweets, and hot and cold drinks.

The workshop will be delivered by Hannah Blumhardt and Liam Prince, the two No-Waste Nomads behind The Rubbish Trip, who have been living without a rubbish bin since the beginning of 2015. The Rubbish Trip will also be delivering two other free workshops at The ReMakery in Whangarei:

- their flagship presentation, Reducing Our Household Rubbish: The Zero Waste Approach (Tuesday 9 July 2019, 6-8pm, https://www.facebook.com/events/2014712695500042/)
-Bare Essentials: DIY Zero Waste Toiletries and Cleaners (Thursday 11 July 2019, 6-8pm, https://www.facebook.com/events/313115702688278/).

- What is the zero waste movement? Why is waste reduction important?
