NOVEMBER MONTHLY PROGRAM
Monday, November 15, 2021, 6:00‑7:30pm MDT
All Attendees: FREE
A program on Zero Waste will be presented by Stephanie Levy and Karen Sweeney. Our overly convenient throw-away culture has led to overflowing landfills and oceans drowning in plastic. Part of the solution has to be a shift in mindset toward trying to reuse things whenever possible and recycle or compost the rest. We will have to choose to do this both as individuals and as a society if we want to truly achieve a sustainable future for the planet.
The presentation will explain changes in US recycling that are coming about due to China’s refusing to accept material for recycling. It will also clarify the local situation and the need for reduction of single use plastic, much of which has little recycling potential.
Please join us and learn what you can do to help save our environment!
Stephanie Levy and Karen Sweeney are past co-chairs of Eldorado/285 Recycles, a group that works to improve recycling options and performance, increase interest in composting and raise awareness about waste reduction. Stephanie is a writer, artist and a passionate supporter of sustainable living practices. Karen has a long history with recycling beginning in Colorado in the 70’s with EcoCycle and later working statewide with recyclers in Wyoming.
