Event description

Description

"One week = one shopping bag full of rubbish. There are two adults and three children in the house. Our challenge has been set. Impossible! I hear you say. Well here's how we did it".


That's
Mia Swainson, environmental engineer and lifestyle writer for HerCanberra. Mia set her young and busy family a challenge to significantly reduce the amount of waste they send to landfill each week, and succeeded! Join Mia for an evening of all things waste where you'll walk away with simple and practical tips for reducing, reusing and recycling with your family. Mia will run through the basics of waste separation, worm farming, keeping chickens, plastic-free food storage ideas and more.

Optional Activity: Household waste audit of current situation

The first step to halving your household waste is to understand the waste that you’re currently producing. So that you can get the most out of the workshop, please take a look at your green household waste bin in the week leading up to the workshop, before you put it out for collection, and estimate the percentage make-up in your waste stream. Bring along your response to the workshop and we’ll discuss them on the day.

In the last week, please estimate the contents of your green household waste bin.

Give each item a % value, with the total adding up to 100%
