Let’s talk about the climate emergency – Sharing the things you have

August 30, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Tools and gadgets. We seem to be obsessed with them.

Have you any of the following items sitting in a cupboard, shed or garage at home: steam wallpaper stripper, powerwasher, long ladder, tree loppers, sewing machine, steam cleaner.

If you do, how often do you use them? Do they sit on the shelf for most of the year?

All these tools have a cost to the planet to produce- they contain mineral resources, and the manufacturing processes have a cost in terms of the amount of carbon produced in making the goods.

Are they items that you need to own or could you hire or share them with friends and neighbours?

A circular economy is one where we aim to make the very best use of the Earth’s resources and eliminate waste, by recycling materials, repairing and repurposing goods, and sharing tools and other items.

Join us as we talk about our relationship with ‘possessions’. How could we do things differently and reduce our impact on the planet?

Monday 30th August 2021,  7.30pm – 8.30pm via Zoom
