Don’t Be Part of the Pollution…
…Be Part of the Solution
We produce roughly 260 MILLION pounds of waste annually. Althoguh we make attempts to divert that waste from landfills, did you know that 91% of all plastic isn’t recycled? Every year, each American throws out about 1,200 pounds of organic garbage that can be composted. Let’s change that!
We’ve launched a Green Booth in our dining area to help tackle the challenge of sorting waste and we want to encourage our Loyal Locals to help us do the job. Our goal is to spread education and awareness around the issue of diverting waste from landfills and reducing our overall Ecologicl Footprint.
What is your Ecological Footprint? How many planets does it take to support your lifestyle? We challenge you to take the quiz and find out! https://www.footprintcalculator.org/
It’s important to remember these steps when reducing waste…
✓Learn exactly what products can be recycled vs composted (see our guide below)
✓Rinse and clean items before putting them in the recyle bin
✓Properly recycle electronics, batteries and toxic waste*
✓Choose to buy items that can be recycled
✓Reduce by reusing (old jars make great tupperware for lunches)
*We’re hosting e-recycling at the market this June for World Environment Day. Westech Recycling will be collecting old phones, computers, keyboards, batteries. See details on our calendar.
Learn more this weekend when JD the owner of Recycled City comes to the market for a Q&A session. Ask JD all of your compost questions, learn about what they do at their farm and take the extra step to keep your organic garbage out of landfills.
Let’s help each other to make this world a cleaner, better place!
