How to organise a trashdate meetup?

  1. Ask your friends to join you. It is easier and more fun together.
  2. Make an event on Trashless.earth, Facebook and/or Instagram, invite your friends and ask friends to invite friends.
  3. Wait for everybody to gather at the appointed day and place and have a brief introduction round for everybody to get to know each other.
  4. Then give people the opportunity to have 4 to 6 Trashdates of 15 minutes each. Ask them to make couples, go for a trashwalk together and come back to change partners after 15 minutes.
  5. After the trashdates, make a circle and ask people to share what they are organizing or what help they might need to reach certain goals regarding the plastic solution. Maybe you can help organised one of the ideas that came up for the next meetup.
  6. Close with drinks or a picnic somewhere to celebrate your achievements of the day. ( If you decide to have drinks or a picnic, don’t forget to announce it when you invite people to your event).

Let's Play! Plastic Attack

So how do you organise a plastic attack?

  • Ask your friends to join you. It is easier and more fun together.
  • Pick a date, a time and a supermarket and find a meeting point near the supermarket.
  • Make an event on Facebook, Instagram and/ or Trashless.earth, invite your friends and ask friends to invite friends.
  • Share the event in Facebook groups if you have Facebook and in other social media.
  • Call the headquarters of the supermarket of your choice and tell them in a friendly way that many people are concerned about the amount of plastic packaging in the shops and what you are going to do at what day and time.
  • Inform media if you like. The more attention you get, the more likely it becomes that the supermarket will listen.

How to organise a screening of Albatross?

Albatross is one of the most touching and inspiring movies I have seen concerning the plastic problem. Of course you can also use this setup for any other movie screening.

  1. Ask your friends to join you. It is easier and more fun together.
  2. Download the movie at www.albatrossthefilm.com and organise a location to watch (this can also be at your house).
  3. Make an event on Trashless.earth, Facebook and/or Instagram, invite your friends and ask friends to invite friends.
  4. Organise some snacks or drinks and welcome your guests on the day of your event.
  5. Afterwards you can tell them they can do something about it by joining Trashless.earth and ask what small action they can take to make a difference in their daily life.
  6. More information about the screening you can find on www.albatrossthefilm.com.
