If your daily trash bin contains too much plastic and tubes of all kinds that gives you acid lifts and you want to learn how to reduce your daily waste production, the zero waste workshops are made for you.
Under the Zero Waste Project, which the City of Carouge is committed to, the challenge is to reduce by 30% the amount of incinerable waste in the municipality within the next three years. The citizen is invited to act at his level to achieve this goal.
But if it is relatively simple to sort out your compost or give up the famous plastic “cone” by replacing it with a cloth racing bag, making your own products can be relatively more difficult when you do not know exactly how to do it.
That’s why the zero waste workshops have been created. During these meetings, you will learn how to make your own cosmetics, cleaning products or cook simple recipes such as hummus, or yogurt.
The agenda is already set for th first quarter of 2019. The workshops will take place at the restaurant l’Accolade in Carouge, from 6.30 to 8pm on January 21st: laundry detergent, January 28th: pita bread and tortilla, and March 28th: washing product. And if you have a particular desire, you can also send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be careful, however, the site recommends doing a little check a week in advance to confirm the place and time, that may change.
The Workshops, which offer concrete ideas on reducing our ecological impact, are interactive meetings where you can discover how to change your lifestyle and adopt new habits.
The next meeting will take place on January 30th, 2019 with the following theme: “Beauty, hygiene, cleaning and clothing”. The workshops are also held in Carouge, in the salle du Rondeau. The price is CHF 20.- standard fare, CHF 10.- for students and free for carougeois or members of Zero Waste Switzerland.
Finally, on the website www.carougezerodechets.ch you will find a lot of tips and tricks for households, businesses, schools, restaurants, etc. Conferences, coaching, guides, lists of ecological stores and products are also offered and greatly facilitate the implementation of a concrete action plan.
