In this week’s podcast I chat to zero-waste advocate Katie Hine. Over the last couple of years, she’s worked towards reducing her waste to just a jar every couple of months, far shy of the 780kg the average Hamiltonian is responsible for each year. Hear about her journey, and tips on how we can all reduce our environmental impact starting in the home. (www.zerobelow.co.nz or insta “zerobelowbykatie“)
Earlier in the week Katie and I organised a meet up for those interested in zero-waste which was a great opportunity to share ideas, ask questions and find out what is happening at a community and political level with regards to waste minimisation. If you’re interested in future meetings, or want to be one of the first to sign a petition to the Hamilton City Council which launches next week – join the Zero-waste Kirikiriroa group on facebook.
