Zero Waste My Pantry! with The Rubbish Trip and Be Free Grocer
December 15, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
RECAP invites you to a hands-on workshop about how to make easy snacks, treats and pantry staples from unpackaged ingredients. Delivered by zero waste dream team – Bron, owner of Be Free Grocer (Palmerston North’s zero waste grocery store), and Hannah Blumhardt and Liam Prince, the two No-Waste Nomads behind The Rubbish Trip (who have been living without a rubbish bin for over four years).
Do you want to reduce your waste at home but not sure where to start? Often a substantial chunk of the waste in household rubbish bins is food and drink-related. This workshop goes straight to the heart of the issue, covering tips for low-waste food shopping, how to prepare everyday food from scratch using unpackaged ingredients, and how to avoid food-related rubbish when you’re out and about.
The focus is on easy, affordable, nutritious versions of the kinds of packaged ‘convenience’ food and drink that most people consume regularly, including muesli bars, biscuits, crackers, dips, sweets, cereals and spreads, and hot and cold drinks.
This workshop has a KOHA entry to go towards supporting RECAP to run more events like this in the local community.
