2016 Zero Waste Summit to be Held October 22
Eureka Recycling is hosting the second annual Twin Cities Zero Waste Summit, from 1 to 5 p.m., on October 22, at St. Paul Neighborhood Network, in St. Anthony Park.
The Zero Waste Summit brings together the people in the Twin Cities region whose work is contributing to a zero waste future, creating a platform to discuss challenges, share accomplishments and develop a vision to strengthen and focus this growing movement.
The focus of the summit will be climate change, environmental justice and helping to grow the local economy while building a stronger community.
The summit will feature local organizations and projects, complemented by three national leaders to bring a broader perspective to the zero waste conversation.
Eureka Recycling is the only organization in Minnesota that specializes in zero waste. The organization's services, programs and policy work present solutions to the social, environmental, and health problems caused by wasting. Eureka Recycling's mission is to demonstrate that waste is preventable, not inevitable.
Cost: $40. Location: 550 Vandalia St., St. Paul. For more information, visit EurekaRecycling.org.
