Reuse Republic 2022
Taking place during National Reuse Month and Organised by Cork County Council’s Environmental Awareness Office and IRD Duhallow, Reuse Republic will bring together national and local reuse initiatives to exhibit their services and showcase how individuals and communities can take action to reduce their consumption and positively impact climate. An exciting series of workshops themed around reuse and waste prevention including furniture upcycling, composting and reducing single use plastic will take place on the day. The exhibition aims to empower local homes, community groups and businesses to move away from a throw away and single use society and to bring reuse into their daily lives.
As Ireland has committed to reduce food waste by 50% by 2030, in line with the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), food waste is set to be a core theme of the event. Cork celebrity chef Trisha Lewis, known on Instagram for Trisha’s Transformation, will be doing a cooking demonstration on the day to show innovative ways of reducing food waste when cooking meals at home.
