Everyday we are bombarded with messages to do our part stop climate change. Some of these common messages include:
1) recycle 2) bring our own reusable bag 3) reuse a coffee cup
But these plans do not offer a permanent solution. Instead we should start with waste reduction and prevention. My New York City Waste Reduction brings together people to do community service events to reduce waste. It will be the city's first crowd sourced waste reduction meet up group. If you are interested in getting towards the goal of zero waste please join my group and come to my event.
Would anyone in volunteering a few hours of their time and help me sort some supermarket circulars this week. I am hoping to bring them back to local businesses and encourage them to reduce their print circulation? I will provide free lunch and drinks.
The next week we can work on reducing postal mail and supermarket circulars in your neighborhood.
