REUSE SYSTEMS

This session kicks off a week of zero waste goodness. Zero Waste Network Board members and staff will welcome participants and give some background to the event before the first panel discussion begins.

 

Our first panel will look at reuse systems. Reuse is a cornerstone activity of the zero waste approach. Despite single-use being ubiquitous in the food & beverage industry, there are hopeful signs this could change. This session will look at what those in the business think are some opportunities and barriers for increased use of reuse systems in Aotearoa and provide insight into some of the key players and bigger picture context.

CREATING CHANGE TOWARDS ZERO WASTE

The transformation to a zero waste world is about more than recapturing resources in a circular economy, it’s a gateway to a new way of thinking about resources, relationships, community, connectedness and nature. This session will explore the roles different parts of society have in creating change towards zero waste, and look at some of the most significant challenges and opportunities that exist for those working in the zero waste sector today.
