“This workshop is suitable for all households, flats, ages and stages. In fact, everybody should attend,” says South Taranaki District Council Environment and Sustainability Officer Victoria Moyle. Workshops are promised to have participants engaged and laughing as we look to reduce waste in our homes and everyday lives.

A second workshop will be available to residents for ‘Waste-free Living’ where Meads takes a light hearted approach to the waste situation in South Taranaki where participants will be taught small key actions in the home to making the big differences in the rubbish pile.

“Kate Meads, who is popular for her success in waste reduction all over New Zealand, is a passionate and informative facilitator, and we are lucky to have her provide these workshops online for us to take part,” says Victoria.

This is the first time these workshops have been provided online and Council is excited to be able to make it available to all of South Taranaki. To make it more flexible, ticket holders will have a fortnight to view the workshops and can choose a time that suits them.
