There's never been a better time to become more environmentally conscious and some simple tips could help make a big difference.
MidCoast Libraries, in partnership with MidWaste Regional Waste Forum, is running a Choose To Reuse workshop in Forster to teach participants how to make small changes to live a low waste lifestyle.
If you'd like to learn more about how to reduce your food, plastic and textile waste, then this workshop is the perfect place to start.
Those taking part will receive information on where to recycle plastics and how to do a home audit, as well as making a veggie bag to take home.
We believe that the more we promote these kinds of messages, and show how easy it is to implement the small changes, the more people we can get on board.Chris Jones
"It's fantastic to see the environmental movement continuing to gain momentum and we're delighted to be offering these workshops to further promote the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle message," MidCoast Libraries manager, Chris Jones said.
"We believe that the more we promote these kinds of messages, and show how easy it is to implement the small changes, the more people we can get on board," Mr Jones said.
This informative, environmentally focused workshop will be held this Saturday, July 13 at Forster library from 2pm to 4pm.
This project is a NSW Waste Less, Recycle More initiative with funding from the waste levy.
The workshop is free but bookings are essential.
