A Zero Waste Festival will be held in Cashel on Sunday, April 22.
The festival is being organised as part of the Zero Waste Cashel Project.
April 22 is also international Earth Day, whose theme this year is ‘End Plastic Pollution’.
The one-day Zero Waste Festival is being held in Halla Na Féile, Cashel, and runs from 12noon to 5pm. There will be a number of talks and workshops aimed at helping you manage and reduce your waste and save money at the same time.
Workshops vary from learning how to make your own non toxic household cleaning products and detergents to making reusable beeswax cloth wraps.
Attendees will also be able to find out for sure what goes in the recycling bin and learn simple strategies on how to effectively reduce their waste. There will be number of stalls where you can buy package free goods such as loose nuts, seeds, herbs, spices, pulses, grains, coffee, tea etc. along with homemade products like soap and cleaning products. Be sure to bring your own bags and containers so you can fully experience real zero waste shopping!
A number of very successful Zero Waste Festivals have been held in Dublin and this is the first one to be held outside of the capital. There will also be children’s entertainment, so the whole family can come along.
More information can be found on www.zerowastecashel.ie and on the Zero Waste Cashel Facebook page. The festival has been made possible thanks to support from Tipperary County Council under the Festivals and Events Grant Scheme 2018.
