The Rubbish Trip

Tāmaki WRAP - Waste Reduction Action Project is pleased to host The Rubbish Trip's popular presentation on zero waste living at Hub Zero NZ in Panmure. The event will start at 6pm with some yummy zero waste kai and a range of stalls showcasing various local zero waste initiatives around the Auckland area. The talk will begin at 6:45pm.

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 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).

This event is free; everyone is welcome. We're keen to share some kai with you - we'll do a lovely big zero waste pot of soup with home made breads. If you'd like to bring dessert or some extra snacks to share, please do - but remember that it needs to be zero waste (that means, do what you can to make and transport the kai without producing waste, avoiding things like having to open a packet or using things like plastic cling wrap or tin foil).

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!
