Zero Waste Week

Posted in Events by Kate Archdeacon on June 12th, 2009

Could you survive a week without throwing anything away?   An invitation from the Ethical Consumer Guide to join the “Zero Waste Week” trial. Can we live with zero rubbish for one week?  It’s a basic concept,  yet may be not-so-basic to implement. Join us on a “Zero Waste Week” trial, where together we attempt to reduce our household rubbish for seven days.  For some people this will mean not having anything that is not able to be recycled in curbside collections, while for others it may mean no packaging waste including recyclables. For all, it will mean preparation as the things we buy affect the rubbish we end up with.

The proposed date is the last week of July, 26th – 1st.

The next planning meeting is Thursday 18th June.
