On the Path to Zero Waste – Learn How to Build an Environmental Strategy for a Sustainable Economy

On June 12, 2014, please attend a workshop at the City Hall, to explore strategies that cities, counties and communities may pursue to advance zero waste – an economic and environmental strategy essential to building a sustainable economy.

The workshop will be organized by Urban Ore. Founded in the 1980s in Berkeley, California, Urban Ore is operated by dozens of workers and generates millions of dollars in revenue by diverting thousands of tons of valuable resources from landfills annually. In addition to serving its immediate customers, Urban Ore serves as a key link in a regional supply chain for scores of reuse stores in the San Francisco Bay area.

The event is also co-hosted by The Committee For A Better Environment, Waste Prince George’s, the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, Community Research, Simplicity Matters Earth Institute, the Greenbelt Climate Action Network, the Chesapeake Sustainable Business Council, and their partners.

This special program is part of a speaking tour organized by the Institute for Local Self-Reliance and its local partners to celebrate the Institute’s 40th anniversary.

RSVPs are useful and welcome, but not required (please email to: greg@community-research.org ). The meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. with registration & conversation. The presentation will start at 7:00 p.m., followed by a Q&A and Discussion
