Recycle and Compost Right in YYC – Event #5 – Pathways to Plastic Free Webinar Series
Pathways to Plastic-free – A city-wide webinar series on plastic pollution and solutions, featuring local leaders, activities, and concrete tips that will pave a path to being plastic-free both personally and as a community. The target audience is Calgary residents, and there will be up to six webinars in the series over a year.
On March 31st, 2022 at 6 PM participants tuned in for a fun one-hour presentation on how to recycle and compost right in YYC. Many of us practice aspirational recycling, putting items in our recycling bins without truly knowing whether or not they are acceptable and can be turned into something new.
With so many new plastic packaging products on the market each and every day we know it can be confusing to figure out what and why certain plastics are acceptable while others are not. Our City of Calgary expert Sharon Howland is here to break it all down, providing you with simple tools and guidance to help you know what goes where.
This event was part of the Pathways to Plastic-Free Initiative funded by the Alberta Ecotrust.
