WASTE NOT WANT

The Kinning Park Complex is aiming to become a zero waste building.

We are reducing the amount of waste created in our space.

Interested to learn how "WASTE" produce and materials can be

re-distributed, re-cycled, up-cycled, re-used and re-purposed into items that you WANT?

(Not sure what all these WASTE WORDS mean!?)

Food

We have expanded our community meals programme with the launch of the KPCafé! We are now serving lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays as well as Sundays; Dinner is still available from 6pm every Thursday. So pop in for a meal or a morning cup of tea and a pastry!

We receive surplus food from Fareshare, Tesco, Marks & Spencers and Premier Produce. KPC is helping prevent good quality and fresh food that has been over produced ending up in the bin and consequently landfill. Join us for a meal and find out how you can help too!

Workshops

If you are coming along to our Café you can also get involved in our drop in Up-cycling and Craft Workshops at the same time. Artist in residence Elena facilitates workshops every Thursday evening and Sunday afternoon!
Suitable for both adults and children.

During May 2017 workshops are focused on making lampshades, glasses and place mats for the KPCafé.

At the workshops in June we will be making banners from up-cycled materials to promote the Waste not Want project at the Kinning Park Complex 21st birthday celebrations in July!

Thursdays 5.30pm-7pm & Sundays 11am-3pm

CARBON LITERACY and EDUCATION

Kinning Park Complex is committed to offering opportunities for others to gain skills, experience and knowledge through our Waste Not Want Project.

We have a range of volunteering opportunities available. If you'd like to find out more check out our volunteer teams here or contact Isabel at volunteer@kinningparkcomplex.org

As part of our Community Education programme, we are excited to be partnering with local school Lorne Street Primary offering workshops to each class year. Our KPCafé  staff and volunteers will be creating a series of simple recipes, hints and tips to reduce food waste that will also save you time and money. If you'd like to understand more about carbon emissions we will be creating easy to understand information for you!

Electronics and Plastics

Our Repair Café will be back on Sunday 11th June! We are encouraging you to bring along broken electrical items to see if we can "fix it before you ditch it." It might save you buying, for example a new kettle and you will be contributing to reducing landfill waste!

Over the next few months we will be installing our own bespoke machinery to process plastic. Plastic pollution is on of the worlds biggest climate problems for many reasons so contact jon@kinningparkcomplex.org if you'd like more information.

Wasteful Conversations

We are keen to hear from other groups, organisations, artists, activists and experts who are or who would like to do more to raise awareness on waste. Our Wasteful Conversations Programme will aim to bring different people across Glasgow together to start conversations and collaborations.
