As we approach 8 billion people on the planet, the need for environmental sustainability is clear. Bruce Olszewski will discuss how to close open loops of consumption in order to achieve environmental goals.  With the end of a product's useful life -- often after a single use – energy is wasted and pollution and habitat loss caused when resources are extracted, processed, manufactured, transported, used, and ultimately discarded into landfills and incinerators.  Natural resource waste can be reduced by embracing the opportunities presented by closing open loops of consumption through the mechanisms of waste reduction and recycling.

The one hour Zoom meeting will begin promptly at noon. Questions from attendees are encouraged and can be submitted when you register or during the event.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.


All are welcome so please forward this notice to other residents who are interested in this important topic.
