On April 27th from 6 – 10 pm, Rise and Shine will hold its annual fundraiser Motown Memories. It is a wonderful event and a lot of fun. Last year, many members of the group Moving to Conservers enjoyed the event.
As many events do, disposable plates and such were used to serve 175 meals. Members of Conservers approached the planning committee and asked if we could help plan next years event with a goal to make it a zero-waste event. They said yes!
The first planning meeting was held this week and the planning paperwork had been updated to include the zero-waste goal! Fantastic.
We are having a lot of fun trying to figure out how to accomplish the goal. If you have ideas or experience in making events zero-waste we would greatly appreciate learning from you. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
One of the easiest ways to support those working towards zero-waste is by voting with your dollars and/or time. If you want to support this venture, contact us and we can discuss the best ways to do that.
We are pretty excited! Thanks Rise and Shine for being a community leader!
