Reducing Our Household Rubbish: The Zero Waste Approach

19/10/2019 at 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

The Rubbish Trip returns to Christchurch to deliver their popular presentation on zero waste living, kindly hosted by Exchange Christchurch – XCHC!

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. This is possible because XCHC has kindly sponsored the venue for this event. XCHC believes space should always be available for creativity and community use.
