This is the message motivational speaker and waste educator Kate
Meads is putting out through her ‘Waste Free Parenting’ Workshops. The
workshops are aimed at local parents to change their attitude towards waste so
their children and future generations can enjoy this planet too.
The Council is bringing Kate to Rangiora to run the workshop for
local residents, which will be held at the Rangiora War Memorial Hall on
Thursday 14 September 2017. Costing $25 for individuals and $30 for couples, attendees
will receive $100 worth of Waste Free Parenting products to take home to help
them make small changes.
The Waste Free Parenting workshop came about because of Kate’s
personal journey to become a more conscientious consumer and to look at the
simple, small ways we can all make a difference. The workshop covers a variety of topics
including recycling properly, reducing food waste, composting, reducing
packaging, cloth nappy basics and modern reusable products that suit parents
busy modern lifestyles and that save money too.
Solid Waste Manager Kitty Waghorn says “The information attendees
receive will inspire them to make small changes to their day-to-day household
activities to encourage them to become consumers that are more conscientious and
save a huge amount of money in the process.”
