Speaking at the launch of the exhibition, An Cathaoirleach Councillor Ossian Smyth of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, mentioned how making one small change can make a big difference. ‘It is necessary to rethink the waste challenge and view unwanted items as a potential resource. When buying a new item, think about what will happen to it after use. Items that can be repurposed, repaired and reimagined can reduce waste’.
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown’s ‘The Tide is Turning, Waste Prevention Exhibition’ will be publically displayed in The Studio, dlr LexIcon from Thursday 16th to Thursday 23rd of May 2019.
