Philly Talks Trash: A Virtual Series on Waste

About this event

Philly Talks Trash: A Virtual Series on Waste is a monthly on-line program intended to educate and inspire you to participate in the imperative shift towards this new paradigm of zero waste that will replace our throw-away culture and help slow climate change.

The Series is a collaboration between the Philadelphia Neighborhood Networks’ Environment Action Committee and the Plastic Reduction Task Force of Weavers Way Co-op, event hosts. Beginning January 20, and ending July 21, monthly programs will be offered featuring representatives from nonprofits, government programs, and businesses that are working to reduce waste and increase reuse and recycling in the Greater Philadelphia Region. Topics will include single use plastics, food waste and recovery, packaging, recycling, incineration, and litter and dumping. Each program will take place on the third Thursday of the month from 6:30 - 8:00 PM. Zoom links will be provided through emails.
