Halve your Waste in Half a Year
Do you want to reduce your household waste but are not too sure where to start? In this fun and interactive two-hour workshop you can learn how to halve your waste in half a year.
26 practical, cost-effective tips to reduce the amount of rubbish you throw in your bins. One tip for each week; realistic, doable and easy. It's not about all-of-a-sudden going zero waste or being plastic-free, it’s about taking small steps which combine to make a big difference. Progress, not perfection. We’ll also make a DIY waste-free multipurpose cleaner to get you started.
Tutor Juliet Dale is the creator of The Great Eco Challenge, an online project that aims to educate and encourage New Zealanders to minimise their household waste. She is NOT zero-waste or plastic-free. In fact, she sees those terms as a bit intimidating and polarising. She is just a normal kiwi who is insanely passionate about reducing the waste we send to landfill. By making small changes, one step at a time, she and her family of 5 reduced their waste by 70% in less than a year, and now, she loves helping others to cut back their household waste too.
