Sustainable U: Recycling: Do You Know What To Throw? - Online

Nov 10 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Online TX

Recycling has been in the news lately, specifically about shipments from the U.S. being turned away around the world. We can solve the problem by going back to recycling basics and reducing contamination at the curb. “Wish-cycling," the thought process wherein residents think something “should" be recyclable, is behind most of our recycling issues. In this webinar, you'll learn how the recycling process works, why it's important to keep contaminants out of the recycling stream and what you really should recycle.

Presenter: Lori Delacruz Lewis has more than 25 years of experience in environmental and sustainability education and leads the Sustainability Education team at Dallas College. She holds a master's degree in sustainability and development from SMU.

Hosted by Dallas College and EarthX.
