Does this sound like you?

You want to do better for the environment but don’t know how? You think you know what is recyclable, but still hesitate when trying to figure out which bin to throw something in? You know that you want to reduce the amount of waste you produce, but get intimidated when trying to shop in the bulk section? Think this sounds like you? Then this workshop is perfect for you!

Come join Marina McCoy, the Founder of Waste Free Earth at VCET on Wednesday, November 20th from 12-!PM, where she will host an hour-long workshop about Waste Free Living. In this workshop, you will find out how you can reduce your waste at VCET, find alternatives for your favorite things, become aware of your individual impacts and inspire others to do the same. Marina will also dive deep into what is recyclable here in Vermont and how to recycle and compost properly at VCET. There will be plenty of time for questions at the end of the workshop, so bring them with you to be answered!
