A new series of workshops will offer Galwegians practical tips on how to adopt a more sustainable model of living.
Funded by Creative Ireland, the talks will take place at Galway City Museum and Westside Library, encouraging participants to start taking small steps to "refuse, rethink, reduce, reuse, repair, recycle and rot".
By applying these seven Rs to everyday life, Galwegians can support a more sustainable lifestyle which also helps to protect the environment.
This Saturday, April 20, from 2.30pm to 3.30pm. Mike Holden from Stop Food Waste will give an illustrated talk at the museum on ‘Preventing Food Waste and Composting’. Phone 091 532460 to book a place.
The following Friday April 26, there will be a ‘Minimal Waste Grocery Stall ’ set up in the foyer of Galway City Museum from 11am to 3pm, encouraging visitors to dispense with disposables and giving them an opportunity to buy minimal and zero waste groceries, such as salt, rice, soap, shampoo, and much more.
Galway City Museum is located beside the Spanish Arch and opens Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 5pm and from Easter Sunday to end of September 12 noon to 5pm.
Admission is free. Visit www.galwaycitymuseum.ie for more information on exhibitions and events.
