New Volunteer Opportunity: Earth Day Volunteers Needed!

From: Laura
Sent on: Wednesday, April 2, 2008 3:04 PM
Announcing a new Volunteer Opportunity for San Diegans Who Care about the Environment!

What: Earth Day Volunteers Needed!

When: Sunday, April 20, 10:00 AM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Description: Zero Waste San Diego's mission is to create, promote and implement programs that maximize management and conservation of resources, reduce greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming, and persuade citizens, businesses, and governments in the San Diego County region to adopt a zero waste philosophy.

This will be the first year for the San Diego Earth Fair to set a goal to become a Zero Waste Event. This will be a historic event and you can be a part of it! Recycling has been available since the beginning of Earth Day and recently the collection of organic materials for composting has been added. 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 will use this remainder as an opportunity to teach attendees how zero waste can eliminate the need for landfills and concepts such as "waste." We will sort the residual material into 12 market categories and 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.

We need the total of 40 volunteers to create a successful event.

We ask that each volunteer commit a minimum of 3 hours. The first shift will take place from 12:00pm to 3:00pm and the second shift will be from 3:00pm to 6:00pm. If you would like to volunteer for 4 hours, we do have lead volunteers spots open.

To register please email Zero Waste San Diego at [address removed].
