Reducing Our Household Rubbish: The Zero Waste Approach

A Sustainable Backyards Event

Envirohub Bay of Plenty is pleased to host The Rubbish Trip’s popular presentation on zero waste living in Te Puke as part of Sustainable Backyards 2020.

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 five 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).

Date: Wednesday 11th March 2020

Time: 7 pm – 9 pm

Place: The Orchard Church, 20 McLoughlin Drive, Upper Papamoa
