Re-Thinking Our Waste

  • Thursday, June 1, 2017, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schenectady County is offering a one-hour class for adults to learn about Recycling and Zero-Waste Living. The average American creates 4.4 pounds of garbage every day, but the EPA estimates that as much as 2/3 of what the average American throws away can be recycled, reused, or composted.

The phrase “Zero-Waste” describes lifestyle choices that prevent and reduce the amount of waste we create in our daily lives. There are many easy ways to say no to garbage before it happens! Cooperative Extension invites you to learn about the true state of solid waste in America and discover the solutions we can all incorporate into our lives to make a difference.

This class is free and open to the public. Please register for the class by sending an email to ap2267@cornell.edu with 6/01_ZeroWaste as the title of the email. It is suggested that participants bring a pen and notebook to take notes.
