2. Zero Waste Concepts & How to bring this to Your Home Design Seminar

Zero Waste Platinum Event.jpg
  • Seminar will follow the workshop at JLL's office with Award Winning Healthy and Eco Conscious Interior Designer Rowena Gonzales, Founder of Liquid Interiors and Pioneer Zero Waster Paola Cortese-D'arcy, Founder of LoopUnite! They will share their knowledge and experiences of Zero Waste.
  • Zero Waste is a goal that is ethical, economical, efficient and visionary, to guide people in changing their lifestyles and practices to emulate sustainable natural cycles, where all discarded materials are designed to become resources for others to use.
  • It means designing and managing products and processes to systematically avoid and eliminate the volume and toxicity of waste and materials, conserve and recover all resources, and not burn or bury them.
  • Implementing Zero Waste will eliminate all discharges to land, water or air that are a threat to planetary, human, animal or plant health.
  • These concepts will also be presented with applications to residential  design from Rowena Gonzales from Liquid Interiors through case studies. She will be covering aspects in design, construction and execution systems that can be used from corporate level fit outs to DIY projects.
