Bettering our Community: Using Resources Wisely

Thursday, February 09, 7:00 PM

The Environmental Cooperative
50 Vassar Farm Lane
Poughkeepsie, NY 12603

Want to create the smallest carbon footprint when you give a party or sponsor an event? Prefer to give your unused items to someone who would really appreciate them? Need to find places to recycle those “not accepted here” items? Join the American Association of University Women for their February meeting and learn the answers to these and many more recycling questions.

Bettering Our Community will be presented by Sarah Salem, Business Development Manager of Zero to Go, and Siennah Yang, Vassar College Coordinator of Rescuing Leftover Cuisine. Sarah is passionate about the Hudson Valley community and in finding sustainable solutions to enhance growth and vitality. Siennah is a junior at Vassar College majoring in geography. Growing up in Taiwan, she was aware of the harmful effects of food waste.

In addition, an extensive list of area recycling opportunities, created by Barbara Van Itallie and distributed by Mary Ann Boylan, will be provided. The program is co-sponsored by the Vassar College Environmental Cooperative. We hope to see you there!
