    This introduction to the zero waste lifestyle workshop presents the ground rules of zero waste and how to apply them in your daily life. Reducing waste is good for the environment, but it is also good for oneself. Come and learn why! 

    Every minute, a truckload of waste is dumped into the ocean. Most of it is plastic waste that ends up in the stomachs of fish, birds and marine mammals. To put an end to plastic pollution, we need to address the source of the problem. By adopting a zero waste lifestyle you can reduce the amount of waste you create, sometimes down to one jar a year! Sounds crazy, but it's possible! 

    Presented by Valerie from NU Grocery.

    Registration required. Registrants will receive an additional email with the Zoom link ahead of the program.
