Zero Waste Living Lecture Series
Kingman Center for the Arts will hold a series of five “Zero Waste Living” Lectures taught by Kaylee Baker, founder of ZippNada, a sustainable lifestyle company. The lectures will take place at various locations downtown including the ArtHub, 402 E. Beale Street, from Feb. 26th to June 25th.
Instructor Kaylee Baker has been practicing zero waste living for eight years and has spoken at several conferences, festivals and podcasts about zero-waste living in rural locations. She has also taught a variety of interactive and hands-on workshops in Lake Havasu. Zero-Waste living is a set of principles focused on waste prevention that encourages the redesign of resource life cycles so that all products are reused. The goal is for no trash to be sent to landfills, incinerators or the ocean.
“My long term goal is to create a mobile Zero-Waste Refill shop for the Havasu and Kingman community! You by no means have to be this hippy-dippy stereotypical eco-warrior (although I welcome those too) to participate in sustainability” says Kaylee Baker. “My goal is to simply spread information to those who are interested and to aid those wanting to start their own journey – whatever that may look like to them.”
This interactive Zero Waste Living lecture series includes discussions on zero-waste living and simple steps that everyone can take to lesson their impact, a workshop making all-purpose cleaner and deodorant and what the term “Greenwashing” means and how to avoid it. There will also be a “Composting for Beginners” workshop as well as a Clothing Swap workshop. Ms. Baker states, “I want to make zero-waste available to people will all different views, backgrounds, lifestyle and interests, I want to show that sustainability offers immense benefits such as: strong sense of community support, healthier eating habits/over all lifestyle (also reduce your risk to certain diseases and cancers as plastic is linked to these), saves you money in the long term and a cleaner local environment which benefits tourism and the local community.”
The first of the 6 Zero-Waste lectures is February 26th. Participants can sign up for the entire series or on a per class basis. For further information or registration go to: https://kingmanarts.org/classe
