Living A Zero Waste Lifestyle; Recycling Workshop Tonight Weds April 27
So Earth Week continues on its crazy way with many more town cleanups (check the photos on Facebook), tree giveaways at Land’s Sake this weekend, presentations about harm from light pollution (WFTA-led, more info later today), and tonight’s First Parish Church-sponsored workshop on how to up your recycling game. As always, it’s hard to get to all these conflicting events (tree by-law info session also tonight) even if your kids didn’t both have soccer training tonight. Oh wait, that’s just me.
You can learn more about how to be a good recycling citizen by joining the First Parish Church’s Zero Waste Lifestyle session live and in-person tonight (Wednesday) at 7 pm, or feel free to join online instead. That way you can toggle between plastic and trees, and multi-task like a millennial.
You won’t want to miss information on a Zero Waste, featuring author and policy expert Stephanie Miller. In this workshop, the focus will be on the importance of “recycling right” and how to identify what’s recyclable and what’s not. You will learn more about recycling waste streams by material: metals, glass, paper/cardboard, and plastics. Everyone will have an opportunity to ask specific questions related to their own recycling. The discussion will also cover how to find sustainable packaging alternatives and how to eliminate some waste streams altogether.
