Craig+Reucassel+-+Head+shot+%281%29

Join Craig Reucassel from ABC’s popular TV series, War on Waste, for a breakfast discussion on how businesses, schools and the community can make adjustments to reduce the amount of waste we produce.

Craig will be the key speaker at a War on Waste Breakfast hosted by Bass Coast Shire Council on Wednesday, 22 August at the Silverwater Resort in San Remo.

Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield, explained that Council is working towards a ‘Plastic Bag Free Bass Coast’.

“This means building on the momentum already created by the community and Council showing leadership in looking after our environment.” Cr Rothfield said.

“It’s not going to be easy for businesses and customers to adjust, but there is no better motivation: We have to start changing out habits if we want our children and grandchildren to have a healthy environment to grow up in.”

“It’s fabulous that Craig is coming down to visit our community. I’m very proud of what we have achieved so far with our three bin system, and I think he will be impressed by the level of awareness we have in Bass Coast around waste issues.”

Tickets to join the conversation and have breakfast with Craig are $38 per person, including a sit down buffet breakfast which caters to all dietary requirements. Tickets can be purchased online at Eventbrite, search ‘Plastic bag free Bass Coast’ at www.eventbrite.com.au

The breakfast event will start at 7.30am and finish at around 9.30am, it will be held in The Bay Room at Silverwater Resort, 17 Potters Hill Road, San Remo.
