Name: MEMBER EVENT: Racine Sustainable Business Network - Getting to Zero Waste
Date: May 15, 2019
Time: 7:00 AM - 9:00 PM CDT
Event Description:
Waste is a critical issue. We have to act now. Oceans are plagued by dead-zone garbage patches the size of Texas. Recently a beached whale was found to have 88 pounds of trash in their stomach. Virtually all sea life shows traces of Styrofoam. More and more landfills are blighting the land. Our local Kestrel Hawk landfill has less than five years left.

We have to do what we can do about this. Business and industry are often leading the way. It is time for the companies, every organization and small businesses in greater Racine to step up and do our part. Come to this meeting prepared to learn, to share what you already do, and to pledge to work toward zero waste in your business.

Presentations by:
  • Michael Keleman, Our Local Zero Waste Movement
  • Randy Olson, Goodwill E-cycle Operations
  • CNH on achieving Zero Waste
  • David Rhoads: The Waste Free Office
You will also hear from other attendees. What are you finding is the issue? Do you have a program in place? Share what is working for you, get support for what hurdles you may be having.
