Waste Free with Kate

Waste Free with Kate

Waste Free with Kate delivers informative, entertaining, and impactful waste-minimisation workshops that empower everyday Kiwis to reduce their environmental footprint through simple and effective changes.

The organisation educates thousands of people every year on all facets of waste reduction through a range of campaigns: Waste Free Parenting, Food Lovers Masterclass, Waste Free Living, Waste Free Period education, and a variety of private/community/business workshop offerings.

Whether it’s reducing waste with a baby in the house or the ‘what, why, and how’ of Kiwis’ food waste habits, Waste Free with Kate has it covered. The Waste Free Period initiative is the most recent campaign where students are educated on the different menstrual management options that are available, in an un-biased and logical way.

Waste Free with Kate educates approximately 6,000 households through around 200 events a year. Additionally, the organisation educates, motivates, and supports almost 30,000 people through social media. In 2019 alone, the Waste Free Parenting workshops diverted a potential 997 tonnes of disposable nappies from landfills.
