My Journey to Zero Waste – Zero Waste Pop-Up Event

My Journey to Zero Waste – Zero Waste Pop-Up Event

Are you planning to start your own Zero Waste journey? Are you already well on the way and want to find ways to improve? Do you have your own Zero Waste anecdotes to tell? Come along to our “My Zero Waste Journey” story sharing event at Fierce Fitness on Sunday, November 10.


We are eager to share personal stories about Zero Waste living in Ireland and Dublin with each other, share empathy, hacks, tips and tricks, and everything Zero Waste related.

We are happy to have Jess with us who is just about to open a zero waste shop in Dublin!!!

Jess is a Canadian who recently returned to Ireland with the goal of setting up a zero waste grocery shop. She was inspired to cut down on waste after a visit to a zero waste shop in Canada showed her how a few easy steps could make a drastic difference in the amount of waste she was producing- and as a bonus, it was a nicer way to shop! Her store, The Good Neighbour, aims to make zero waste shopping easy. Whether you’re coming to stock up on pantry staples, cleaning products, tea, or snacks, you can find it all package-free. Opening date: December 7th, Dundrum Village.

Zdenka is a zero-waste advocate who lives in Dublin and shares her tips and tricks for living a more sustainable life on her platform, Coming to Zero. If she’s not working or training on aerial silks, you’ll most likely find her in the garden trying to coax vegetables out of the ground or in the kitchen/laboratory where she passionately fills glass jars with everything and anything that couldn’t be allowed to go to waste. She will share a few tips and tricks how to reduce the weight that goes into our weekly bins.

Brian Mac Muiris has just recently got involved in the zero waste movement. What inspired him was seeing all the plastic bottles being dumped at a race he was helping at. So he worked on that race to help them reduce the amount of bottles being used and they went from using a 1000 bottles to none. And then he started thinking about the waste he generates himself. Started to work on reducing the amount he produced at home. Still working on the journey but slowly getting there :)


The Fierce Fitness Studio is located in Greenmount Industrial Estate, Harold’s Cross, Dublin 6W, and the entrance to the Estate is beside the HX46 cafe. Best to come by foot (if you live in the area) or by LUAS and bus. You can plan your journey by using the Transport For Ireland Journey Planner our check out the map below.

Get involved

Last but not least: We are always on the look-out for new people to share their Zero Waste journey and inspire other people. We also want to hear from you if you would like us to cover a certain topic or a certain aspect of Zero Waste and low-impact living! Let us know if you have a great idea for a workshop we could host. Or maybe you own or know of a venue that could host a series of our pop-up events? Or maybe you would want to organise an event yourself outside of Dublin?
