About the Event
We are again in that time of the year, and while we are excited for the upcoming holidays we are also worried about the impact we’re leaving behind. Every year, tons of food are wasted after Thanksgiving, with 200 million pounds of turkey alone tossed out annually, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council. And not only is food waste to worry about but also, it is estimated that Americans throw away 25% more trash during the Thanksgiving to New Year's holiday period than any other time of year. The extra waste amounts to 25 million tons of garbage or about 1 million extra tons per week.
That’s why, this month, we are focusing on ideas for you to plan effectively your holidays while generating less waste and making better purchases decisions. We will learn from sustainability experts and experienced zero wasters on how to make a more sustainable Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and upcoming Christmas holidays.
Join us this Thursday, November 18th from 5-6:00 pm to learn how to reduce your impact while preparing for the holidays with your loved ones.
