NEW EVENT

There is NO AWAY – Sue Parmenter-Phillips and Laura Davies

Date: 13 May 2019

Place: Kukis Restaurant and Bar, 73 – 75 Paseo del Mediterráneo, Mojacar

Time: 12.30 pm

Cost: FREE TO MEMBERS

This topic is very much in the news these days and this event is a journey into upcycling and being a #oneinamillion recycler because you can never throw rubbish “AWAY”.  CALAWIM is delighted that we have two experts to talk about their experiences in keeping our beaches clean and upcycling rubbish to build their house.

Sue Parmenter-Phillips of Coastal Cleaners Andalucía will talk about how her organisation is taking action against plastics, fishing paraphernalia and other litter on our beaches and what we can do to change our habits in small ways to save our planet and our oceans.

Laura Davies, who lives locally in an Earthship, which is a sustainable dwelling constructed from local and waste materials, such as old tyres and drink cans will then talk about her life, how she upcycles almost everything and how we could help the world by making small tweaks to the way we live.

This event will be very popular so please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to attend as places are limited.  Email us at welcome@comeandlookatwhatimade.club using the heading “There is No Away”.
