Reefton Early Learning Centre and Reefton Area School are pleased to host an evening session on zero waste living at the The Broadway Tearooms & Bakery Reefton.

We're the Future Dough Co in Reefton - along with a zero-waste/packaging-free potluck (please bring along a plate of food to share that you've made and transported without waste!).

Join Hannah Blumhardt and Liam Prince, the 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 three 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).

Everyone is welcome. We'll share a rubbish-free potluck at the event, so please bring along a plate of food to share that you've made and transported without waste! (Don't feel like you have to bring something flash, but please no pre-made food from a packet, tin foil, baking paper, plastic cling wrap or other disposables).

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.
