Achieving Zero Waste in Houston & What You Can Do

Sunday Evening Conversations on Creation Continue…

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.

Sunday, May 19, at 6 p.m.

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 http://www.eventbrite.com.
