Zero waste topic of talk at Jesup

BAR HARBOR — Climate to Thrive and Kate Bailey, director of Eco-Style Solutions, will talk about the zero waste movement at the Jesup Memorial Library on Friday, Nov. 4, at 6:30 p.m.

The goal of the zero waste movement is to guide people to change their lifestyles and practices to emulate sustainable natural cycles, in which all discarded materials become resources for others to use. Zero waste requires designing and managing products and processes to avoid and eliminate the volume and toxicity of waste and materials, to conserve and recover all resources, and not to burn or bury them. Bailey will speak about how communities can become more sustainable through zero waste practices.

Eco-Cycle helped launch the recycling movement in the 1970s and is one of the largest nonprofit recycling organizations in the United States. They have 40 years of grassroots experience in the recycling and zero waste movements and are recognized as national experts and leaders in zero waste community planning, advocacy and best practices.
