Learn to upcycle, recycle and save the planet
First-ever Zero Waste Week events start Sunday
By MARY CALLAHAN - THE PRESS DEMOCRAT
Like to waste less food?
Learn to preserve or swap what you grow with other home gardeners or pick up some tips on using odd bits from the fridge for a creative meal.
Have some damaged goods?
Find a way to mend or “upcycle” your stuff so you can still use it, instead of putting it in the trash.
Want to help spare the planet? Compost organic waste instead of sending it to the dump or join a cleanup brigade at a local creek.
All of these subjects and more are on the agenda during Sonoma County’s first-ever Zero Waste Week, starting Sunday.
The event, which runs through July 30, offers demonstrations, community gatherings, webinars and volunteer opportunities that highlight and promote waste-free living — whether that means learning to compost, reducing water waste or brainstorming new reuse opportunities.
