Going plastic free for a month... should be easy enough right? I don’t use that much plastic. I can bring my own containers shopping, and I already use my own bags. Then, we start having a little think about it... and the harsh reality sinks in. Plastic is freakin EVERYWHERE!! Going completely plastic free for a month is quite the task - every corner we turn, there it is. This workshop focusses on the easy ways to make a difference in your everyday lives. Participants can tour through the make-your-own cleaning and beauty product stations, and take free samples home. Product displays, opportunity to ask questions and a chance to purchase plastic alternatives from local plastic free traders will be available on the night.
