ReNewy Living offers a diverse range of eco living workshops, presentations and guided tours to help you blend simple sustainable practices into everyday life.

Each type of workshop, presentation or tour helps you become more resourceful, and broadly covers the foundations of living sustainably – reduce, reuse and recycle – for us to live a healthier lifestyle that’s more in tune with the planet.

The informative and actionable workshops are specifically created for the local community, organisations and businesses who are keen to make sustainable change.
