Join us this week to receive some helpful tips to reduce the amount of resources that end up in the trash, and instead, close the loop by reducing, reusing, refusing, recycling and rethinking! As we explore the subject of waste, learn about nature’s treasures in disguise. What does waste have to do with the work of TreePeople? When we “close the loop” and create little or no waste there is a reduction in pollution, an increase in resources, and overall economic well-being — all contributing to the health of our community forest!
