Lunch and Learn: Zero Waste, Recycling, and Composting

Thursday, July 16, noon – 1:00 PM

It’s likely that over the past few years, you’ve taken steps to reduce your footprint in the world.  No doubt you recycle and perhaps you compost as well, but there’s so much more that can be done, simply and easily. 

For example, what if you could seriously reduce the amount of junk mail that goes straight from your mailbox to recycling?  How much effort would it take to virtually eliminate your use of plastic bags and bottles? And are you familiar with the concept of “zero waste” and the huge impact that this goal can have on the amount of trash that we produce each day? 

Attend this lunchtime event and learn more about what you can do to help.

Rosie Briggs is the Community Campaigns & Eco-Leader Manager for Eco-Cycle, Boulder County’s local recycler and environmental nonprofit. She manages, trains and programs for a network of over a thousand Zero Waste/sustainability advocates (“Eco-Leaders”), in addition to creating and giving monthly public presentations and providing general outreach. She loves honeybees and hates single-use plastic!

Register in advance here for this FREE event.
