Join us for the May 6th Green Drinks at the Marriot Hotel in downtown Keene and learn how to include recycling in your celebrations.
Event waste and recycling experts, Cindy Sterling Clark and Mary Jensen, will give you a brief primer on how to incorporate recycling into your event plans. They will talk about the benefits of striving towards the status of Zero Waste, contracting with waste haulers who respect your dream to be green, basic equipment needs, training volunteers, and vendor/public education that makes economic sense. There will be plenty of opportunity to answer your questions, plus Mary and Cindy will include a short foray into a discussion of composting at events – the crown of “Zero Waste” heroism.
Cindy Sterling Clark has 27 years of integrating municipal solid waste management systems in NY, NH, MA, and VT. As a grant writer, she spearheaded many innovative waste reduction projects for national, state, and local waste reduction initiatives. Today she still talks trash with anyone who will listen but has added yoga to her repertoire.
Mary Jensen is also a waste and recycling management expert with 30 years experience in managing waste programs at large facilities and at large outdoor event. She is currently the Campus Sustainability Officer at Keene State College with a passion for food waste reduction.
You do not want to miss this opportunity to talk trash with these two very knowledgeable garbage princesses!
