Zero Waste Ōtautahi, 11am-11pm, Sat 22 Oct; 11am–4pm Sun 23 Oct

Zero Waste Ōtautahi is an initiative focused on reducing our waste by developing our resourceful habits. This work launched at FESTA 2016 with two projects:

The Zero Waste Map of Ōtautahi Christchurch

This map has locations marked for shops, markets and services that enable daily zero waste habits such as where there are bulk bins to avoid packaging, second-hand shops, farmers markets or local food cafes and so on. The map has been made publicly available and is intended to support the businesses involved to track the impact of the map on their trade.

The Zero Waste Village of Resourcefulness

Skilled craftspeople undertook high quality crafts that are zero waste in nature in a village of temporary shelters. These structures were designed and fabricated from regenerative materials by Ara students as part of FESTA’s headline extravaganza, Lean Means.

The Village of Resourcefulness was situated on the corner of Montreal and Gloucester streets.

This project was presented by Rekindle.
