Choose To Reuse workshops

Are you keen to explore simple tips for reducing plastic waste? The good news is anyone can make a difference - you can start out with small changes or really challenge yourself! Get inspired and learn more about how to reduce your single use plastic waste by coming along to a Choose to Reuse workshop! Nambucca Shire Council in partnership with Midwaste are running free Choose to Reuse workshops showing you how you can make small, easy changes to live a low waste lifestyle.

Whether it is swapping a take away coffee cup for a reusable cup, plastic shopping bags for cloth bags, plastic vegetable bags for reusable produce bags or plastic wrap for beeswax wraps, there will be lots of information to get you started.
