The Rubbish Trip

wild & grace is pleased to host a free presentation on zero waste living as part of a Wellness Weekend organised by the Little Yoga Festival.

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).

This event is free - everyone is welcome. Zero waste afternoon tea will be available. If you feel up to bringing along a little waste-free snack to share, go for it!

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!

You may like to stay for the screening of the documentary with local filmmakers 'Living the Change' afterwards. Look for the FB event for details.

NB: children are welcome to this event, though the talk is pitched at adults. It's helpful to note this is a presentation which requires being able to hear. If your tamariki become restless please leave the room quietly with them. You're welcome to re-enter with them when they're settled (again).
