Enviroschools Nelson, Nelson College, Nelson College for Girls, and Garin College are pleased to host a rerun session of this popular presentation about zero waste living in Nelson.

If you missed this event back in February this year, then you're in luck because The Rubbish Trip is back in town! This event will start with a koha zero waste sausage sizzle and cuppa at 7pm, with the talk kicking off at 7:30pm. Please bring along a reusable cup and plate for your drink and food. All proceeds raised from food and drink will be donated to Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.

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. Zero waste sausage sizzle and coffee at 7pm for a koha (BYO a reusable cup and plate for your food/drink!). The talk begins at 7:30pm.

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.
