Decluttering: all you need is less

Physical health is complimented by good mental health. Decluttering isn't only about creating more physical space in a person's life but also about creating more mental space. 

Switch Your Thinking will present a workshop on decluttering, providing tips on how to re-use, re-purpose, upcycle, recycle or throw out stuff you don't need. The session will have practical strategies for decluttering your home along with advice on how to responsibly dispose of unwanted items. 

Cost*: FREE for residents; $5 for non-residents

Cutting Kitchen Waste hosted by Switch Your Thinking

Switch Your Thinking will discuss strategies to help reduce your food waste and provide you with a new outlook on how you can minimise your waste. 

Learn about the problem of food waste and how you can take action from your very own kitchen. Australians throw away four million tonnes of food every year. When you discard food, you are also discarding all of the water, fertiliser, fuel and energy that were used to get that food to your plate. By switching a few habits you can make a big difference to your emissions and your household budget.

Bring: Paper and pen
Cost*: FREE for residents; $5 for non-residents
Venue: Ruth Faulkner Public Library
When: Tuesday, 17 October 2017, 10.30am - 12pm
