Women Against Waste events are an amazing way to effect real change for your community and the planet.
Never been to an event and not sure what they’re like? We bring women in communities together to swap, donate, recycle, mend and learn how to reduce their impact on the planet. Please visit our Home Page to read all about them, watch the video and see the photos first before you apply.
We’re gearing up to go national with our events, so we can build a movement of women taking real action now to easily reduce our impact on the planet. We’re looking for women who are ready to become Ambassadors for their town/area to run regular WAW events, spread awareness and provide practical knowledge for their community. Are you up for the challenge?

"Being an Ambassador for Women Against Waste & presenting it as my business has given me a wider reach and huge exposure; but best of all it has aligned me with like minded women who care, who show up and who believe in making a change. This to me has been priceless! Anyone who’s thinking about becoming an Ambassador, I highly recommend it. It’s so rewarding to see all the women come together".
