Hosted by Matthew Wright-Simon

South Australia has long had a reputation for leadership in sustainability, from the container deposit scheme that had fed into community projects through to surprisingly inventive projects and programs in every enterprise sector.

We will be showcasing several local social enterprises and also hearing from the peak environmental body for the community not-for-profit sector.

More details to follow, though in the meantime, get in touch if you run (or if you know of) a social enterprise with a focus on the environment – and a special shout-out to any food or beverage brands who might want to nourish our attendees!

Ethically Declutter

Hosted by Diane Salvi

Are you drowning in clutter and stuff, is it time to ethically declutter for a sustainable simple life?

  • How much time do you waste looking for the keys, phone, purse just to get out the door on time?
  • Does the car live on the street because there is no room in the garage, simply because there is too much STUFF!
  • Do you struggle to pay bills on time, because you are drowning in a sea of paper?
  • Do you struggle to find a little ME time or are you always busy doing STUFF?

 

Imagine a life without the clutter, what would you do with more time in your day?

Join our fun, interactive workshop and learn:

  • How to identify your clutter
  • How easy it is to declutter
  • How to eco organise
  • How to refuse clutter
  • How to identify treasures
  • How to let go of clutter
  • How to reduce clutter and divert waste from landfill
  • How to maintain a clutter free space so you can live the life you want

Come along to our evening with Tanya Lewis - The Eco Organiser® and Waste Coach - and discover how easy it is to reduce, reuse, recycle and reward yourself with a simpler life.

Tanya’s emphasis is on regaining control over our time and space by using mindful and ethical consumption.

Tanya and the Eco Organiser® community has helped divert an estimated 37 000 kg of stuff from landfill, simply by finding good homes for unwanted stuff.

Adelaide Repair Cafe - October

Hosted by Adelaide Sustainability Centre

Do you have a broken household item you’d like fixed but need a hand to do so? Then this is your opportunity. Clothes, ceramics, computers, jewellery, furniture...no job to big or small. You just need to be able to carry it in and be happy to sit with the fixers and learn how to fix it. You’re also welcome to drop in if you have something you want to fix and are just looking for advice on how to do so.

Our Repair Café is a free meeting place to bring along broken household items with the help of experienced, volunteer repairers. Maximum three items per person per session.

A list of repairs available on the day will be announced in the week leading up to the event.

Please note we are not a pick up and drop-off repair service - we want visitors to get involved and learn from the repair process.

Adelaide Repair Café is proudly supported by Adelaide Sustainability Centre, a community partnership between the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board and Conservation SA, and is funded by the Government of South Australia.

Fixing is free, but donations encouraged to cover our costs.
