Too Good To Waste – Annual Gathering and AGM 2018
Saturday 18th August
10am – 1.30pm (followed by our Re-use and Repair Fest 1.30pm – 3.30pm)
Greener Kirkcaldy, along with other local, national, and global alliances, have been highlighting how we think about waste. Even household names now challenge us to change how we view items that have no real use or function. However, that’s not the end of the story for our waste. In Kirkcaldy, we’ve been growing an enthusiastic community of people who are keen to repair, reuse and create something new from things we no longer need.
Join us at our Annual Gathering to explore how communities, for example, Zero Waste Towns in Scotland are working together to make waste useful by turning rubbish into treasures.
We’re delighted to welcome our guest speakers:
Zero Waste Scotland talking about towns that have tried different approaches to inspire people to reduce, re-use and repair – making leftover bread into beer and beer back into bread, redistributing food waste and repurposing items in the community like furniture, clothes and more.
Reeni Kennedy-Boyle from Bute Reduce, Re-use, Recycle – an island-wide project that helps residents reuse goods that help the environment as well as everyone in the community.
Our AGM will take place during the Gathering and will be followed by a local and seasonal lunch.
Our Re-use and Repair Fest will be an activity-filled afternoon showcasing how you can repair and re-use many personal and household items.
