Waste workshop in north only

Two parenting workshops on reducing waste are being held in northern Waikato later this month, part of the district’s move to more recyling, less waste.

Kate MeadsNationally renowned ‘Nappy Lady’ Kate Meads will hold one in Meremere on Thursday 28 July and in Huntly the following day.

Parents and parents-to-be receive tips on what they can do to reduce their home’s waste output as well as introducing them to waste free alternatives to expensive disposable products.

“Cloth nappies are part of what we promote through our education but the workshop is about so much more than nappies,” said Meads who has run the 2 1/2 hour workshop in 35 districts throughout New Zealand.

“I am so excited that the waste free parenting initiatives all over the country are having such a positive impact on Kiwi parents,” she said.

“It is fantastic to be able to bring the programme to Waikato district families with the support of Waikato District Council.”

The workshops cost a gold coin donation for an individual or couple. All those who attend will receive a $50 waste-free parenting starter pack.

Bookings are essential, either online or by calling 07 549 2955.

  • The workshops are being held in the north of the district only – at Meremere Hall on Thursday, July 28 from 6pm to 8.30pm, and at Huntly West School on Friday, July 29 from 9.30am to midday.
