Living Zero Waste in Otaki: The Challenge

Transition Towns Ōtaki invite you to join Zero Waste Wellingtonians, Hannah Blumhardt and Liam Prince, for an interactive introduction to the hows and the whys of life without a rubbish bin. Drawing on their own research and two years of experience living zero waste, Hannah And Liam delve into the practicalities and the philosophy of waste reduction and how this can affect your life, beyond the bin. They will discuss innovative examples of waste minimisation policy, practice and thinking from around the globe, and how these might inform community-level waste reduction.
Hannah and Liams presentation will be followed by an interactive workshop where they will
share practical tips on how to survive without a rubbish bin - developed from their own personal homelab experiments, creative shop-hopping and elaborate life hacks. They will bring ingredients to try out some of their key recipes, so you can get started in no time!

This event is free and everyone is welcome. Nau mai, harae mai.

Hannah and Liam have been living zero waste in Wellington for two years. For several months they have been running public presentations, home demonstrations, going to schools and businesses, and also academic and other public panels and conferences, talking about why and how individuals and families can reduce their household waste.
