Dear Liz,   

We are kicking off the new year with exciting classes and events about eliminating plastic waste, conserving water, transitioning to renewable energy, and more!

Berkeley's groundbreaking Single Use Foodware and Litter Reduction Ordinance begins phase 2 this month, which requires prepare food vendors:
  • ensure all disposable foodware and accessory items be certified compostable and free of intentionally added fluorinated chemicals.
  • begin charging $0.25 for disposable cups.
Having helped steward this ordinance, we are excited to see the positive impact it will have on reducing plastic waste in our city. Check out this 3-minute video on this movement that is gaining momentum across the nation, and which features Ecology Center's Executive Director Martin Bourque: Why Recycling Is NOT ENOUGH & How Communities Are Changing the Game 

Water is a precious resource in the state of California. In the face of climate change and the corresponding threat of drought, it is important to conserve water. Join the Ecology Center and the Indigenous Permaculture Project at EcoHouse this Saturday, January 18, for our bilingual Water Is Life workshop series to learn more about how to save and reuse water around your home. This week, participants will learn about how to build Water Catchment Systems. Click here to learn more
