Could your house be a ZERO WASTE house?

Join Sustainable Renton for a wonderful workshop on practical solutions for moving towards zero waste!

December 3, 2016 – 11AM

Blossom Vegetarian

305 Burnett Ave. S., Renton, WA 98057

zero-wasteAllison Love Sheller, Renton resident and mother of two, will share her experience and knowledge about living a zero waste lifestyle. The average person creates 4.38 pounds of trash every day – that’s half a ton of garbage per year. While zero waste may seem like a high bar in our consumer culture, this workshop will provide simple, practical tips and ideas on how to reduce and reuse everyday items to dramatically reduce your household’s trash output.

This workshop comes just in time for the holidays! Allison’s suggestions on gift giving and wrapping will help you reduce your trash impact this holiday season.

Following the workshop, Sustainable Renton Board Member Mary Bakeman will talk about Sustainable Renton’s efforts to eliminate plastic bags from Renton’s resources. Just like our neighbors to the North – Seattle, Redmond and Issaquah – we are looking to initiate an ordinance to promote a plastic free city! Find out how you can get involved in making Renton a city that is truly ahead of the curve and make this ordinance come to fruition.

There is a suggested $5 donation for this workshop. Any donations received will support the continuation of Sustainable Renton projects.
