Home Waste Solutions: From Compost to Culture Change

Home waste solutions aren’t always all about ‘doing less bad’ – but sometimes about ‘doing more good!’ Join sustainability consultant and environmental activist Leo Murray as we spend a morning exploring the link between the future of our planet and the fertility in our soil.

Why Waste – Leo Murray

With nature as his teacher, Leo’s active role is as a change-maker and thought leader in Aotearoa. That encompasses  behavioural change to alternative architecture, event management to direct action activism, waste minimisation to alternatives to the banking system. Seeking to help create a better design to the current system, Leo now works as a sustainability consultant in Mount Maunganui, NZ.
