Zero Waste & Be a Sustainable Citizen Free Workshop

January 19, 2014

Almost everyone knows about recycling and mostly everyone does it. That’s a good thing. Many of us know we can do more, want to do more, but are not sure how. Here is your opportunity to learn how to do more, be more sustainable, and take action to be part of the solution, right now, and right here in your community.

The City of Livermore is hosting a free workshop entitled “Zero Waste & Be a Sustainable Citizen.” The workshop takes you to the next level – beyond basic recycling – and arms you with information and simple, meaningful actions you can practice immediately so you become a “sustainable citizen.”

This fun, engaging class explains how we are all part of the solution to reducing energy and resource consumption. The workshop uses the “Sustainable in 10” principle – ten actions that cost no money, create savings and reduce your environmental footprint. The average “sustainable citizen” household can save over $550 per year, while simultaneously eliminating tons, literally, of carbon dioxide per year (CO2) and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The instructor, Todd Sutton, an expert with over 20 years in the environmental field, has appeared on national television including Discovery and the History channels, has educated thousands on being sustainable. See a preview of the workshop here.
