The synod Lutherans Restoring Creation Team invites you to a monthly environmental education web meeting series whose theme in 2019 is environmental issues and what you can do.

Achieving Zero WasteIn May, Rosanne Barone, Program Director in Houston for Texas Campaign for the Environment, will address achieving zero waste in Houston. At present, Houston diverts only 20% of waste from landfill vs. the national average of 34%. Other major cities in TX have long-term solid waste policies to reduce trash to landfill by as much as 90%. With the opening of the new recycling center, glass will once again be accepted curbside, reducing waste to landfill. But, the city of Houston will still have a long way to go. Rosanne will discuss how we can get to zero waste, and what can you do to help. Please register for this talk on Contact Lisa Brenskelle at with any questions about this talk.
