"Zero Waste" Workshop Encourages Environmental Awareness
Jan 20, 2015 01:13PM ● Published by Jeanne Fratello
Zero waste is a philosophy that redesigns systems and resource use – from product design to disposal – to prevent wasteful and polluting practices. The workshop will cover an overview of the zero waste philosophy; the future of solid waste management; managing food, home, and office waste; environmentally friendly eating; and composting. Featured speakers include representatives from the Sanitation District of LA County and Manhattan Beach's own Grades of Green.
Manhattan Beach has a long history of environmental sensitivity and activism, as a community and as a city government. More details about the city's efforts to improve environmental sustainability can be found on its "Go Green" page.
