The Rubbish Trip

Ruapehu District Council and Central King Country REAP are pleased to host a hands-on workshop with The Rubbish Trip about how to make easy snacks, treats and pantry staples from unpackaged ingredients.

Want to reduce your waste at home but not sure where to start? Often a substantial chunk of the waste in household rubbish bins is food and drink-related (whether the packaging food/drink comes in, or scraps and leftovers).

So, this workshop goes straight to the heart of the issue, covering tips for low-waste food shopping, how to prepare everyday food from scratch using unpackaged ingredients, and how to avoid food-related rubbish when you're out and about. We'll all cook together with whatever ingredients we can forage packaging free, and generally have a great old time!

Our focus is on easy, affordable, nutritious versions of the kinds of packaged 'convenience' food and drink that most people consume regularly, including cereal, spreads, muesli bars, biscuits, crackers, dips, sweets, and hot and cold drinks.

The workshop will be delivered by Hannah Blumhardt and Liam Prince, the two No-Waste Nomads behind The Rubbish Trip, who have been living without a rubbish bin since the beginning of 2015.

The Rubbish Trip will also be running two other events in Taumarunui: their classic presentation about zero waste living, and a hands-on workshop about DIY Zero Waste Toiletries and Cleaning Products. They're also running other events in the district (in Ohakune and Raetihi). Check their FB event listings for more details.
