The Tairawhiti Environment Centre and Gisborne District Council are pleased to host an evening talk on zero waste living in Gisborne.

  • 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).
