Plastic Free Gold Coast is excited to announce the 2019 workshop series. On a monthly basis, we will deliver workshops to gradually upskill the community to a more sustainable and plastic-free lifestyle. Held at Karma Collab, a co-working space and community hub with eco values and a green heart.
The first workshop in the series to help you reduce your impact – Let’s Get Started
Let’s help get you started on reducing your impact by refusing single use plastic and finding solutions and alternatives that are available on the Gold Coast. Everyone’s needs and abilities are unique. You might be a parent, student, live with housemates in a rental, travel, have dietary/health requirements, budget restraints etc etc. Learn practical steps to reduce single use plastic to fit your lifestyle. If you’ve already started on your journey, get some hints on how to encourage friends, family and your community to make changes. Even better, bring along a friend – you can help them get started! We will give you a local guide with information for living sustainably here on the Gold Coast. Bring a pen and paper to do some activities that will help identify areas for improvement in your home and habits. Take some helpful resources home to help you on your journey.
