Would you like to reduce your waste and your impact on the planet?

Long time NWEI volunteer Betty Shelley will be offering her three-session “Reduce Your Waste, Reduce Your Impact” class at the Northwest Earth Institute office for three consecutive Tuesdays, beginning Tuesday April 17th from 6:30 to 8:30. The class will deal with solid waste/garbage, but will also touch on reducing water, energy, and other resource use.

The format is interactive with the goal of engaging participants through discussion and assignments to explore their actions and behaviors, and learn ways to make lasting changes. Learn Betty’s techniques and share your own.

The number of participants needed is a minimum of eight and a maximum of twelve. The $25 fee (cash only) is due in full at the first meeting. Please share this with anyone you know who is interested in making a commitment to reducing their impact.

*To register, contact Betty directly at  503-244-8044  or via email: greenhouseone@gmail.com
