Reducing Our Household Rubbish: The Zero Waste Approach
Bhakti Lounge is pleased to host The Rubbish Trip's popular presentation on zero waste living in the heart of Wellington City! For those keen to stick around after the talk, there'll be a delicious vegan dinner, prepared by Bhakti Lounge, for just $10! Help us to keep this event waste-free - BYO clean crockery and cutlery.
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. The talk will be followed by a $10 vegan feast prepared by Bhakti Lounge - just pay at the door on your way in if you'd like to enjoy this meal. Feel free to BYO crockery and cutlery to help us keep this event waste-free!
***Bhakti Lounge staff humbly request that you ensure your BYO crockery and cutlery is clean, dry and free from any previous meal food scraps for hygiene purposes. We have a wash up sink next to the bathrooms available for you to wash your dishes afterwards too :)
This talk is part of The Rubbish Trip's travelling project, taking the zero waste message around Aotearoa New Zealand. This will be The Rubbish Trip's last talk in Wellington City until summer, so don't miss out! For info on upcoming events in other parts of the country, check our Facebook event listings.
