Aaaand... we're very excited to be taking part too along these epic people! Thanks for the invite, Plastic Free July Aotearoa!!

Liam will be running a demo of how to make his very famous pea flour crackers (after 3 years of The Rubbish Trip, we're still unsure if we're most well known for talking about waste reduction, or for promulgating this pea flour cracker recipe...).

Hannah will be doing what she does best, which is not making pea flour crackers, but embarking on a semi-structured rant at the end of the event. (she'll try and keep her face further from the microphone this time, to avoid the "Hannah's talking really loudly" comments in the Zoom chat box).

Timeline PhotosWe've been asked a few times if Plastic Free July is still happening in 2020 and the answer is YES! Though it won't be exactly the 10th anniversary challenge we were originally planning, the plastic waste problem isn't going away. Of course human health is paramount and we believe we can do this and still take steps to care for the planet and make a difference. We've been a little quiet on social media as we've been busy getting ready to share lots of ideas and stories as this year we focus on what we can do in the home. We hope you can join us and together work towards a world without plastic waste. ... See MoreSee Less
