Are you trying to encourage your family, friends or colleagues to reduce their waste, carry a reusable cup or start a reuse initiative and wondering why people prefer to recycle?
Well the fields of behavioural psychology and behaviour change have studied human motivations, different people types and our innate biases to produce some fascinating insights into the different factors that influence our engagement with reuse, reduce and recycle behaviours.
Join Livvy Drake and the Bristol ReUse Campaign team for an introduction to this fascinating subject. In this interactive session, you will hear about a range of behaviour change principles which will help you to understand how humans think and what motivates them. Then you will get a chance to put your learning into action and design an intervention to inspire reuse in the home, place of work or even with a business idea. Come with your own challenge or be prepared to help with another attendee’s reuse challenge.

Why is plastic recycling so complicated? Which bin should compostable plastics go in? Is waste to energy a better solution to landfill? Why do some towns have one bin recycling whereas others have multiple bins?
With Blue Plant focusing the collective conscience on the issues of plastics, the realities and complexities of recycling and waste disposal have been highlighted.
But there is much more to waste than just plastics. Join this Funzing talk to geek out on waste, get an understanding on what recycling really means for many products and materials. Understand about the plants and countries where our waste gets processed and how this affects their end of life.
Don’t worry this won’t be a completely depressing talk, because change is afoot. Learn about all the developments and positive solutions and changes that will readdress the materials ending up on our shelves in the first instance. This talk is perfect for those who have committed to reducing plastics, are confused by recycling or want to make informed decisions for their business and product packaging.
