Achieving Zero Waste: Local Strategies
to Transform "Waste" to Resource
With Portia Sinnott http://www.facebook.com/people/Portia-M-Sinnott/100000147752796
Come hear the next in Sustainable San Rafael's year-long series of education forums on individual actions to counter climate change. Waste accounts for about 5% of Marin's carbon footprint--and reducing that impact to zero is well within the reach of both individual and community actions.
From her experience as a leader of both Sonoma Zero Waste http://liteinit.openfacestudio.com/content/blogsection/5/12/ and a Bay Area-wide "Zero Waste Brain Trust" http://sustainable.org.nz/uploads/Opus_Sustainable_Newsletter%201.pdf Portia Sinnott will outline emerging "best practices" that San Rafael and Marin need to consider as we begin the process of transforming waste franchise agreements into resource management programs.
