Waste Free NZ

Kate Meads was recently labelled New Zealand's own waste free warrior and is a very humorous and motivating speaker.

Drawing from her own experiences as a typical modern day consumer Kate shares her stories and insights to create a greater awareness of the choices we are making and the impacts they are having.

If we all do nothing because it seems like we are not making a difference, nothing will ever change and we have to question what legacy will we leave our future generations.
