As part of Plastic Free July Aotearoa, Focus Paihia Community Trust, Zero Waste Granny, and Turning the Tide - Pahia Zero Waste Action are pleased to host The Rubbish Trip's popular presentation on zero waste living in Paihia, followed by a facilitated opportunity to set your own zero waste challenges for Plastic Free July and beyond!

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.

After the talk, stay on for an extra 15 minutes to set your own Plastic Free July/zero waste challenges, and hear from Jane Banfield (Paihia's very own Zero Waste Granny and the brains behind Turning the Tide - Paihia Zero Waste Action) about how you can get on board to spread zero waste throughout the Paihia and Far North communities!

The Rubbish Trip will be running a series of free events throughout the Far North from mid-July to the end of August. Check our Facebook event listings for more info! If you'd like us to come and run an event in your Far North community, please get in touch!

This talk is part of The Rubbish Trip's travelling project, taking the zero waste message around Aotearoa New Zealand.
