Welcome to our website!

We hope this website can be a support to you as you try to reduce your waste and increase the positive impact you have on the environment!! Hopefully we can steer you away from the pitfalls we experienced and speed you towards all the positive aspects of zero waste living.

Zero Waste Maynooth has always tried to be an honest, welcoming and friendly space. We want everyone to feel free to start their zero waste journey – we are genuinely delighted when anyone makes a move towards being more sustainable. We recognise that different people have different challenges in life. We hope to include zero waste ideas in coming posts that can be achieved in some way for everyone.

We don’t claim to be experts or to be perfect Zero Waste advocates. We are a bunch of people trying to balance all that life has sent our way! Simply put we love our kids and our planet and we want to do our best by both of them.

One quote which sums up our approach is “We don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly”. (The quote is by Ann Marie Bonneau aka the Zero Waste Chef – definitely worth checking out!) Only together can we make the changes needed. So let’s pull together and keep this planet as wonderful as can be!

We have put up articles that were previously published in the Maynooth Newsletter – hopefully they will provide you with some light reading to keep you busy until our next post!

(PS. We will be posting weekly on the blog and updating the events section to let you know of any upcoming workshops. If there’s any topic or workshop you would be interested in , please get in touch!)
