The Waste Free Fair is back!

15 July 2020

The Waste Free Fair is back for its third year. After last year’s popular event, Wastebusters and Plastic Free Wanaka are once again co-hosting an afternoon of zero waste inspiration on Saturday, 18 July at the Lake Wanaka Centre.

The Fair is held in the middle of Plastic Free July, when people all over the world are choosing to refuse or reduce single-use plastics. There will be plenty of solutions for those who want to cut plastic waste out of their lives at home, at work, and even on the building site.

As well as a variety of products for sale, there will be prizes, bulk bins, tasty food, and a guide to local waste free shopping. You can participate in beeswax wraps demonstrations and learn the Japanese folding art of Furoshiki. You can also see how to make produce bags out of curtains!

Chat with vendors and zero waste practitioners about ways to upcycle, reuse and reduce our waste. You can also follow Wastebusters and Plastic Free Wanaka on Instagram and Facebook for tips and inspiration through the month.

For more family fun earlier in the day, come along to the Waste Free Wanda Singalong, also at the Lake Wanaka Centre from 11am to 12pm. Join Wanda for some interactive songs, dancing and inspiration; learn how we can combat single use plastic and protect our environment. Tickets are $5 for the whole family.

Come along to the Waste Free Fair with friends and family and get inspired: Saturday 18 July, 1-4pm, Lake
Wanaka Centre, gold coin entry, bring cash to spend.
