Plastic Free July Preparation

Hosted by Adelaide Sustainability Centre

Plastic Free July... Where to start?

A quick, after work session to prepare you for Plastic Free July.

Going plastic free for a month... should be easy enough right? I don’t use that much plastic. I can bring my own containers shopping, and I already use my own bags. Then, we start having a little think about it... and the harsh reality sinks in.

Plastic is freakin EVERYWHERE!!

Going completely plastic free for a month is quite the task - every corner we turn, there it is. So it might help to think of this month as a bigger learning experience. Focus on eliminating the bigger impact stuff will help ward off feeling completely overwhelmed, and in time, the smaller things might also be addressed.

This workshop focusses on the easy ways to make a difference in your everyday lives. Environmental pollution can be tackled in the shopping aisle. With tips and tricks on how to live a life less plastic - we’ll cover shopping, food, cleaning and body care choices.

We'll be participating in Plastic Free July. Even if you can't make it to this session, register for the PFJ challenge by visiting www.plasticfreejuly.org/register #choosetorefuse

Water is Life - Stories from Standing Rock, USA

Hosted by Adelaide Sustainability Centre

An environmentalist reflects on an indigenous-led water protection anti-pipeline movement

Mni wiconi – Water is Life

Join Barbara Koth as she describes the lessons and vision she drew from the Native American-led Standing Rock water protection anti-pipeline action. Barb visited Sacred Stone camp in North Dakota (US), and stayed involved with the movement, including Adelaide initiatives, until the closure of the camps and Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) approval after President Trump’s election. From the cultural training required to stay onsite and the DAPL financial divestment campaign, to the pressures for a new kind of Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), she’ll share the movement’s ethic of ‘peaceful, prayerful protest.’ She’ll also detail what’s happened since and how the model has relevance for other campaigns in resistance to energy and mining extraction.

With acknowledgement of the traditional custodians of the land, the Lakota people of the Great Plains.

The Clean Bin Project: Film Night and Community Dinner

Hosted by Adelaide Sustainability Centre

A competition where less is more

Is it possible to live completely waste free? In this multi-award winning, festival favourite, partners Jen and Grant go head to head in a competition to see who can swear off consumerism and produce the least garbage. Their light-hearted competition is set against a darker examination of the problem waste. Even as Grant and Jen start to garner interest in their project, they struggle to find meaning in their minuscule influence on the large-scale environmental impacts of our “throw-away society”. Described as An Inconvenient Truth meets Super Size Me, The Clean Bin Project features laugh out loud moments, stop motion animations, and unforgettable imagery. Captivating interviews with renowned artist, Chris Jordan and TED Lecturer Captain Charles Moore, make this film a fun and inspiring call to individual action that speaks to crowds of all ages.

 


Come along for an evening of shared food and conversation, followed by a free screening of 'The Clean Bin Project'

6 pm - Potluck community dinner, please bring a plate of food to share*

6.45 pm - Guest speaker: Q&A with Niki Wallace. Niki's an 'almost' zero-waster and PhD candidate (UniSA) researching sustainability within the design sector. We'll hear about Niki's new project 'Encore by Touche de Paris', a fashion service that is about shared access to items, rather than individual ownership (sharing economy).

7 pm - Film Screening
