Reducing Our Household Waste: The Zero Waste Approach


Puniho Pā and Para Kore are pleased to host an evening on zero waste living with The Rubbish Trip.

*This event will begin with a pōwhiri - please arrive 10 mins before start time, and bring along a small koha (gold coin) - kia ora!*

Join Hannah Blumhardt and Liam Prince, the two No-waste Nomads behind The Rubbish Trip, for an introduction to the practicalities and philosophy of household waste reduction. Drawing on their own research and over two 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).

After the talk we'll have a zero waste kai - BYO a plate of rubbish-free food to share!

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!
