(SOLD OUT) An Intro to Zero Waste

  • 10 Cable St E1 8JG (map)

Zero Waste week Event 1/2

Have you heard about ‘zero waste’ and want to know more? Have you started making a few changes but not sure how to progress? Or you just want to meet people who are at the same stage of the journey as you? If yes, then this event is for you!

We have teamed up with HetuSustainably Vegan and the Mylkman to bring you this talk that is aimed at individuals who are new to the zero waste movement so we will be giving a broad overview of what it’s all about and help you build strong foundations so you can flourish.

This is a small and intimate event which will allow people time to have their questions answered and to mingle with others in the room.

A few of the topics we will cover:

  • Simple steps towards making a difference

  • Is ‘zero waste’ really possible?

  • It seems too difficult or expensive

  • I just don’t have the time or money to make these changes

  • Does it really make a difference?

As well as the talk, you will have the opportunity to purchase a few zero waste items from our co-host Hetu*. You will also be able to pre-order some amazing nut mylks from the fabulous Mylkman that will be available for you to collect on the night. They will also do a short demonstration on how to make the mylks and what we can do with its by-product

*We will cover this topic off in more detail during the event but we wanted to mention something in advance. You don’t have to buy new things, you may already have items at home that can be reused or repurposed, this just gives you an opportunity to pick up some items that you MIGHT need

Sustainably Vegan  

Sustainably Vegan is a platform that seeks to merge Veganism with Zero waste to engage both communities in a wider environmental context. Through social media Sustainably Vegan seeks to advocate for animal rights whilst simultaneously creating awareness for the consequences of our consumerist habits. Immy's activism centres itself around the small changes we can all make in our everyday lives to ensure that we create a huge impact, and hopefully change the world one plastic bottle at a time.
