Organization: BPW Boulder
City/Country: United States
Business and Professional Women (BPW) Boulder Chapter voted last year that all of our future events will be Zero Waste. We are working hard with other organizations in Boulder on all kinds of environmental issues but Eco-cycle says that Zero Waste is the easiest and quickest way to fight climate change. They also say that 42% of our greenhouse gases come from how products are made, transported and disposed of! That's almost half the problem! So reduce and reuse soon important! Other organizations in Boulder are doing the same!
