N.E.W. Zero Waste Coalition Invites Environmentally Minded Individuals to Attend Its Meetings
Amy Spears, Oneida Nation Environmental Specialist, and Dean Hoegger, President, Clean Water Action Council, recap key concepts, principles, and practices that support Zero Waste.
“Waste Not ……. Want Not”
• What happens to your household waste once it goes into the garbage truck?
• Are there items in your garbage that could and should be re-cycled?
• Do you have a collection of whipped topping, sour cream, and yogurt containers in your cupboards?
• What happens to the cans and plastics you put on the curb?
• How “dangerous” are plastic bags?
• What about food waste — can we turn food waste into “gold?”
Come, learn more! Bring some household containers and plastics. Find out if they are recyclable.
