(Re)Launching our Upcyclers Gatherings

We’re pretty excited to be re-launching our monthly gatherings for anyone and everyone to come and chill with us at Hub Zero!

We love to share ideas and support each other at the hub and one way we do that, is we connect with each other and give time to ideas that may be able to grow.

We’re “Re-launching” because The Reclaim Project used to run these monthly gatherings prior to us securing a space, in local community centres. They were a great tool for networking and we’ve been wanting to re-instate them, it’s just taken a while to get things sorted enough to get them going again.

We’d love for you to join us!

On the Last Monday of the month, 12.30pm to 2pm, at Hub Zero. See you there!

Our Market Stalls – Onehunga Community Expo

Hub Zero is a network of upcyclers that link together to create a market of different upcycled product. That means that we don’t just want to sell through our Zero Waste Centre, we want to get out and about in the community, share our amazing product and encourage people to learn about the importance of being a conscious consumer.

Tara (from Rākau Tautoko) and Liz (from United Sustainable Sisters) went along to The Onehunga Community Expo to share the amazingness of Hub Zero with our Maungakiekie community! We were so busy selling product, this was the only photo we managed to snap!

If you know of any markets happening in and around you, let us know! we’ll be keen to jump into the action!

The Rubbish Trip comes to Hub Zero!

Wow! What a night! We were very spoilt with Hannah and Liam from The Rubbish Trip coming to join us at Hub Zero for the night to share all of their wisdom, sharing tips and tricks to live a zero waste life.

We were also joined by several of our friends from the waste community to run stalls, selling their products and sharing information.

Thank you to everyone involved, what a successful event!

 

“My husband and I attended the event at Hub Zero on Friday night and thoroughly enjoyed it. We just wanted to say thank you for organising it, and for the hard work to ensure it ran smoothly, and for the delicious soup, it was awesome!”
