The Waste House

Tue 08/09/15 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

A talk about the Brighton house built of rubbish and whether waste is the eco-building material of the future.
The Brighton Waste House is built almost entirely from thrown-away materials including concrete blocks, timber, vinyl banners, pieces of polystyrene, bicycle inner tubes, old jeans and even toothbrushes.

The house aims to prove that so-called waste material has the potential to become a valuable resource.
Come and hear from ‘Resource Goddess’ and waste expert Cat Fletcher:
• how the house is made of waste
• where they got stuff from
• how it's designed not to waste energy
• the research - what they're finding out from the house.

A Great Waste production in Zero Waste week, this is one of joint meetings between Winchester Action on Climate Change and Friends of the Earth. An ideal way for newcomers to meet people and find out about what's going on in Winchester on climate change and environmental issues. We aim to be friendly, welcoming and lively, with time to talk as well as learn at each meeting.

Refreshments from 7.15pm
