Celebrate the holiday season with zero waste. Waste from holiday meals, gift giving, and packaging can trash our holiday spirit by harming the environment. We throw away at least 25% more trash during the period between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day than any other time of year.
Learn how to reduce your waste during the holidays with our panel of experts from PIRG and Environment America.
Presented by Jenn Engstrom, CALPIRG Director joined by:
- Celeste Meiffren-Swango, Environment America Zero Waste Program Director, discussing plastic and packaging waste;
- Emily Kowalski, Environment Illinois Outreach & Engagement Manager, giving a demonstration of less wasteful gift wrapping;
- Danielle Melgar, PIRG Food & Agriculture Advocate, discussing food waste;
- Lucas Rockett Gutterman, PIRG Designed to Last Director, sharing tips for refurbished and used gift giving.
Leave with new tips to celebrate Zero Waste for the Holidays and bring your family’s waste reducing traditions to share with fellow PIRG supporters.
