The speakers will address the ‘waste hierarchy’ – how we can reduce, reuse
and recycle more waste.
We’ll hear from Carina Millstone who is Executive Director of Feedback, a charity that campaigns to transform our food systems, cutting the impact on our planet, particularly from waste. Leigh McAlea will discuss the impact of fast fashion – she is Head of Communications at TRAID, a charity which aims to “stop clothes from being thrown away.” Jasmine Cockcroft of Plastic Free Crouch End will address alternatives and reuse.
Addressing waste disposal – at the end of the waste hierarchy – will be Ursula Taylor, Head of Legal and Governance at North London Waste Authority. Ursula will discuss what happens to our waste – many of us will
have been horrified to see images of piles of British ‘recycling’ strewn across the shores of South East Asia.
Our speakers will address what we can do as individuals to reduce waste and discuss the sorts of policies that we should be demanding from local and national politicians. Following the talks there will be a Q & A session.
A summary of some of the principal issues is available online.
