    Staying at home is the new going out! Due to the COVID-19 crisis facing our country, people are spending much more time at home, which changes how we must behave in order to lead an environmentally-friendly life. Food waste, plastic recycling and even our trash collecting infrastructure has been impacted by consumers' changing lifestyles in unexpected ways. 

    So what can we do? Sheltering and social distancing doesn't mean we have to give up on sustainability. Join us for an interactive Zoom session, "Sustainable Sheltering: How to be Eco-Friendly at Home", for a primer on urban composting, tips for making conscious consumer choices, and more!
