The Story of Plastic, which takes a sweeping look at the human-made crisis of plastic pollution and the worldwide effect it has on the health of our planet and the people who inhabit it. We’ll finish up the month with a free webinar on July 28: Living a Zero Waste Lifestyle in the Time of COVID. We’ve got some great speakers lined up, and local community members who are rocking the zero-waste lifestyle.
To help you get started with your zero waste, plastic-free July, we have put together two community challenges you can join this summer:
1. Plastic Free EcoChallenge: Similar to our April Earth Day EcoChallenge, this July challenge is oriented around reducing plastic consumption, especially single use plastics. Join the Sustainable Resilient Longmont team and take action to live plastic-free today!
2. SRL Summer Cleanup: Help beautify our community while enjoying the outdoors! Download the Litterati app for Apple or Android and enter the code 158536 when you create your account, or simply search nearby challenges for SRL Summer Cleanup.
Help us reach our goal of 2020 pieces of litter picked up for Summer 2020!
Please share the links to these challenges with your friends, family, and social networks!
And in some good news, Colorado Senate Bill 20-055 recently passed, which supports the development of a market for recycled materials. Instead of shipping our recyclables out of state, CO businesses will now be encouraged to include more recycled materials into their products. So Recycle It Right and know that your “trash” will become a neighbor's treasure!
Finally, SRL needs you! Be a part of the Zero Waste movement in Longmont - fill out this quick form and let us know how you want to participate and be a part of the green solution.
