National Recycling Week, established by Planet Ark in 1996, is held every year during the second week of November (7th to 13th of November 2022). This year, North Star will help you to get involved! We invite you to come along and join us for an evening of education on how we can make a positive impact with the 3 R’s – Reducing, Reusing, and Recycling. Our team will also run a fun DIY recycling workshop to inspire you to give otherwise wasted resources a second life. This is a great family-friendly event with something for all ages.
 
This special event will be facilitated by Mari Bastiani, an oceanographer and marine educator who is passionate about creating positive changes to protect our precious marine environment and promoting well-being by inspiring reconnection with nature.
 
Date: Saturday, 12th November 2022
Time: 10am – 12.00noon (DST)
Cost: $19 per adult & $15 per child (3-12yrs)
Location: Marine Discovery Centre (located within North Star Holiday Resort)
 
After the presentation and workshop, you are welcome to spend some more time exploring the Centre’s showcase of state-of-the-art light and sound technology, interactive digital terminals and marine and coastal science displays.
 
What to bring: Event attendees are encouraged to bring in recyclable items such as milk/juice cartons, plastic bottles, cans, old CDs and hard-plastic packaging (all properly rinsed) to be used in the recycling workshop. Our team will also have a few supplies to get you started.
 
All paid attendees will receive a special take-home gift of a branded reusable hessian shopping bag.
