Reverse Garbage was started by educators for educators almost 50 years ago with the aim of reducing landfill through creative reuse. We have a professional development option to suit your needs and budget.

We believe passionately that real change will come through the education of children who will make living more sustainably a part of their lives. A primary aged child now will be making important decisions regarding sustainability in the workplace in just 10 years time.

Your sustainability workshop was amazing! I enjoyed it a lot.
