Reducing Our Household Rubbish

The Rubbish Trip is returning to Whangarei for Plastic Free July! Kindly supported by The ReMakery, Forward, and For Our Real Clean Environment.

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. Free zero waste nibbles will be provided.

The Rubbish Trip will also be delivering two other free workshops at The ReMakery in Whangarei: Bare Essentials: DIY Zero Waste Toiletries and Cleaning Products (Thursday 11 July 2019, 6-8pm) and Zero Waste My Pantry! How to make easy snacks, treats and staples from unpackaged ingredients (Friday 12 July 2019, 6-8pm).

This talk is part of The Rubbish Trip's travelling project, taking the zero waste message around Aotearoa New Zealand. Follow them on Facebook for updates and upcoming events around the country!
