Join us for a networking session with the local zero waste community and learn more about waste minimisation, zero waste and the circular economy, and how Closing the Loop can benefit our planet, people and businesses – Thursday, 22 September, 4pm to 6pm at the Lake Wānaka Centre.
Closing the Loop events are an opportunity for networking, learning and sharing knowledge where we aim to increase the understanding of zero waste and the circular economy. Every event features guest speakers that provide practical, unique examples of their zero waste journey and how they contribute to creating a circular economy in their local community and Aotearoa.
The circular economy is an alternative to throw-away thinking and our ‘make-use-dispose’ economic model. In a circular economy waste has been designed out of the system, no excess is produced, and all resources are recovered. A circular economy is restorative and regenerative by design and recognises the intrinsic value of all living things and the ecosystems that sustain life. It creates strong, resilient and equitable communities where people have what they need to live happy and fulfilling lives.
