"Zero Waste" Workshop Encourages Environmental Awareness

Jan 20, 2015 01:13PM ● By Jeanne Fratello
Waste not, want not, as the old saying goes: Manhattan Beach residents will have an opportunity on Monday, January 26, to learn about moving toward a zero-waste ideal in their lives. Sponsored by the South Bay Environmental Services Center, the free Zero-Waste Workshop will be held at 7:00 p.m. at the South Bay Adult School location at Mira Costa High School (701 South Peck Avenue).

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.

The South Bay Environmental Services Center (SBESC) is the South Bay's resource center for
residents, businesses and municipalities to access information and best practices related to energy efficiency, water conservation, recycling and transportation alternatives and the environment.

To register for the workshop, visit the South Bay Environmental Services Center or call (310) 371-7222.
