Eco Oikos is the zero waste living project run by Anthea Madill that provides information on ways to reduce household waste. The project also promotes second hand shopping as a sustainable alternative to fast fashion and engages the community in this conversation through the associated Facebook group, Second Hand Christchurch.
This Sustainable Event Guide was developed by the Future of Learning Conference and gifted to Ako Ōtautahi, Learning City Christchurch (Authored by Anthea Madill). It provides shared learnings on ways that local, Ōtautahi, City Christchurch organisations can reduce the environmental impacts of events, including reducing waste to landfill, minimising emissions and educating attendees on the importance of their actions. It provides an appendix linking to local resources for sustainable catering, waste management, gifts and more.
