“Reduce Your Waste, Reduce Your Impact,” presented by Betty Shelley
Tuesdays, June 12th – June 26th, NWEI Office
If you’ve not yet had the opportunity to take the “Reduce Your Waste, Reduce Your Impact” class, now is your chance! This class comes highly recommended by two NWEI staffers who both agreed that participating was a wonderfully educational and rewarding experience. The course is held on three consecutive Tuesdays beginning June 12th from 6:30 to 8:30. The class will deal with solid waste, a.k.a. 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 new techniques and share your own. Please contact Betty Shelley no later than June 8th. See the official class announcement for more details. 503-244-8044 greenhouseone@gmail.com
