Plastic Free July Long-Table Lunch

Join Transition Town Guildford for our first ever long-table lunch with a difference – it’s plastic free!

PFJLunch

Doors open at 11.30am. Lunch kicks off at 12.30pm!

Nibbles/hors d’oeuvres, tea/coffee and entertainment will be provided.

Cost: $10 for adults, Children are free.

Book your ticket here: https://ttg-long-table-lunch.eventbrite.com.au

Here’s what you need to do:

Make a dish to share (either savoury or sweet) and bring it along with your own plate, glass and cutlery to the Mechanics Hall in Guildford (next to the Post Office).

The challenge is to prepare a dish using ingredients that don’t come wrapped in single use disposable plastic. Also look for ways to transport your dish without using single use plastic like gladwrap and plastic bags.

Bring your Dilemma Bag

If you were unable to avoid any use of disposable packaging to make your dish, bring your items along to join the display of dilemma bags, so we can start up conversations and share ideas on how to reduce plastic/single use packaging use.

Please remember: This is not a competition! It’s just a simple exercise in recognising the pervasive nature of single-use packaging in modern life.

Special Guest Speakers at the Long-Table Lunch

While we enjoy our plastic free lunch, you will hear from inspirational Plastic Free Living experts on how they avoid single use disposable plastics in their own lives.  Our guest speakers will be Rebecca Prince-Ruiz, the creator of Plastic Free July Challenge and Jeannine from the Wasteless Pantry.

How to get to the Plastic Free July Long-Table Lunch?

The easiest way to get to the long-table lunch is via the train. The Mechanics Hall is only a short walk from the Guildford train station. Alternatively, there is limited parking at the venue and plenty of parking available at the train station (you can park there for free).

We encourage you to consider taking the train or car pool with friends to minimise your ecological impact!
