The Rubbish Trip

The Rubbish Trip returns to Kaipara to deliver their popular presentation on zero waste living in Dargaville! Kindly supported by Dargaville Scouts.

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. We'll share a waste-free afternoon tea - if you feel up to it, bring along a small kai that you've managed to make and transport without producing waste. Don't be alarmed, it can be super simple, like some fruit that you bought without the plastic produce bag - doesn't have to be anything flash.

The Rubbish Trip is running a series of free events throughout the Far North and Kaipara from mid-July to the end of August. Check our Facebook event listings for more info!

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