This will be our sixth year for the San Diego Earth Fair to set a goal to become a Zero Waste Event. We would like you to be a part of it! Recycling has been available since the beginning of Earth Day and recently collection of organic materials for composting has been added. In the past, the organics bins were only placed in the food court area, but this year we will have the organics bins placed throughout the park. There remains some mixed material in the trash, comprised of both non-recyclable and recyclable materials, but most of this material could be recycled.
Our members and volunteers have a very important responsibility. To get to zero waste we need to make sure that the attendees use the appropriate bin. Our volunteers will be the guide. We will use this opportunity to teach attendees how zero waste can eliminate the need for landfills and concepts such as “waste,” educate attendees about the need for manufacturer redesign and responsibility, greenhouse gas emission reductions by recycling, and monetary value of resource management versus landfill reliance. We ask your assistance to make this worthy goal a reality this Earth Day.
