Spotlight: Zero Waste Lifestyle Workshop

Our central theme this Earth Day is “Reducing your ecological footprint” with a focus on plastic, energy, food, fashion and lifestyle. Although it can be hard to come up with a precise formula to measure your plastic footprint, or your fashion footprint, it is possible to come up with tangible, measurable steps to reduce your environmental impact in all of these areas.

Therefore, we are pleased to feature a Zero Waste Lifestyle Workshop with Hague residents Valeria and Luigi.

12:40pm-1:10pm Zero Waste Workshopwith Valeria & Luigi
Location: Hall

I met this Italian couple during a 100-100-100 challenge organized by Duurzaam Den Haag. The idea of the challenge was that 100 families would spend 100 days learning to go 100% trash free. For some of us it was a definite struggle, but for Valeria and Luigi, it seemed to come easily. We weighed our trash each week and Valeria and Luigi had a problem with this assignment, because they had so little trash, you could barely weigh it. One week, their entire trash production were two “Ripe. Eat Me” stickers from two avocados.

You can see why I thought of them for a Zero Waste Workshop. Here is a bit of insight into how they developed their zero waste lifestyle.
“As a family, we were always conscious about recycling and food waste. The turning point was when we realized that we could reduce what we were bringing in the house rather than spending a lot of time recycling and disposing of things we didn’t really need in the first place. The way we use plastic and plastic packaging for our food and drinks made us think about our own waste footprint more than anything else. Most packaging is used once, but lasts forever – we wanted to change that.”

Have you tried going zero waste but don’t know where to start? 
During this presentation Valeria and Luigi will talk about challenges of going zero waste and share practical tips on how you can start reducing your waste right away.

Zero waste does not have to be complicated and time-consuming! Let’s talk about doable steps we can all apply to our busy lives.
