The Path to Zero Waste
with Jeanne Roy
Help celebrate Earth Month and join us at the April B Learning Lunch to learn more about the waste we produce, the four steps to zero waste, and actions you can take to reduce your impact!
Last year, Jeanne Roy and her husband filled only one can of garbage. Yet, the state’s latest survey shows that the average Oregonian generates about 2,500 pounds of waste per year. At this B Learning Lunch, Jeanne will provide practical steps to drastically reduce household and office waste. By recycling, composting, and precycling, we can save natural resources, save energy, and reduce our carbon emissions. All it takes is a more thoughtful approach and a change of habits.
Jeanne Roy is the co-founder of the Center for Earth Leadership, the Northwest Earth Institute, and the Oregon Natural Step Network. She also founded Recycling Advocates, Portland’s Master Recycler program, and the Home Eco-Party program; authored a weekly column on sustainable lifestyle in The Oregonian and This Week Magazine for five years; and serves as an advisor to public agencies on environmental policy matters.
