Abi Hawkins, our Waste Minimisation Officer, is going to be hosting four FREE Plastic Free Morning Teas this month at our Central Otago libraries. These promise to be tasty little opportunity to learn some handy tips about simple swaps you can make that'll make a sustainable difference. Details also on the poster below.

The theme of this year's Plastic Free July is 'simple swaps'.
Our Environmental Engineering team is pictured below demonstrating simple swaps you can make for Plastic Free July. From left Dom (swapping out a plastic toothbrush for a bamboo one), Abi (swapping shower soap in a plastic container for a soap bar), Quinton (paper/plastic throwaway cup for a keep cup) and Tracey (swapping plastic for reusable produce bags). More ideas follow on the simple swaps for kitchen and bathroom posters.
