Talking Trash and Reducing Plastic

 

When Poulsbo Rotary decided to reduce plastic and other waste at their annual fundraiser, they learned that planning — and a few tricks — cut their waste from a dumpster load to a small bag!

 

Thanks to advice from a webpage,  Sustainable Bainbridge – Zero Waste Event Assistance, the Club was able to avoid contamination of the recycling and composting streams, and provide community education at the same time.  Leaders from each functional area of the event worked with members of the Club’s Trash Talk Task Force to eliminate unnecessary waste, and were often surprised that it didn’t take much thought to reduce waste once they simply focused on that goal for a few minutes, and considered alternatives.
