WORKSHOP 2: WASTE FREE BUSINESS WORKSHOP

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

We as clean, green New Zealand are at a critical crossroads when it comes to the environment and sustainability. Sadly the latest statistics in the amount of waste we are producing collectively as a country, tells a different story to our clean, green tagline. People from around the world come to visit our country, but at a rapid rate, our waste consumption figures are skyrocketing.

But there is hope on the horizon, and we have the opportunity to rectify this together. 

As a local business owner, you no-doubt care deeply about our beautiful country. We can all play a role in the reduction of waste and by-products of waste together. There has never been a more critical time to do our part. 

During my Waste Free Business workshop, you will learn about the importance of reducing our overall waste footprint, and discuss great initiatives with staff and management within your business. The workshop will be enlightening, impactive, interactive, fun and not only life changing, but waste changing! 

Let's come together, and get the conversation started on how we can keep New Zealand beautiful. We can be leaders in change - together! 

 

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

The Waste Free Business Workshop runs for 2.5 hours. 
Businesses will learn about where all of their waste goes when it is collected, and the importance of both reducing their overall waste footprint and becoming a change leader in their industry.

There will be discussion time with the businesses staff to identify what they could do to reduce their impact on our country's current waste situation. This includes activities to work on what can be done together to achieve a waste free New Zealand.

Your business will receive a Certificate of attendance as part of the program.
