What you'll do

Whether you are already familiar with Zero Waste or just want to try out a new, eco-friendly way of shopping - this tour is for everyone. You will get to know the Viennese Zero Waste scene and experience how you can buy sustainable food package-free and in any quantity you like. I’ll show you what happens to our trash, why single-use packagings, especially those made out of plastics, are problematic and what we all can do against them in our daily lives. Together we visit a regional organic farmers’ market and a package-free store. There you encounter fresh organic food, regional specialities and Zero Waste alternatives like solid shampoo bars and filling stations for laundry detergent. Bring your own containers or compile your personal starter kit during the tour (see below). On site you will personally meet the engaged people behind the scenes. Experience, how much fun eco-friendly shopping is and how easily you may reduce your amount of trash at home! Course of the tour: - Getting to know each other, background infos & the basics of Zero Waste shopping (about 45 min. + travel time) - Farmers’ market (about 30 min. + travel time) - Package-free shop (about 45 min.) - Open questions
