Two sustainability talks for adults and children will take place in Newbridge Library this weekend.

For children, Be a No Waste Hero is part of Heritage Week and will be hosted by entrepreneur Netanya Curtis.

Ms Curtis, who runs the zero-waste store Unpacked in Kildare town, will answer questions for children aged between seven and twelve years of age regarding recycling and sustainability.

Answers will be provided to questions such as:

  • 'What bin does this go in?'
  • 'Can this be composted?'
  • 'Why should we turn the lights off?'
  • 'Why should we put on a jumper instead of turning the heat up?'
