Recycling 101 and Waste Reduction Workshop: Resources

In early February, I hosted the first of a three-part mini-workshop series on the topic of waste. In this workshop, we covered the basics around recycling and shared some tips and tricks for reducing waste in our every day lives. For those who joined me in this event live, thank you so much for your support and engagement! It was wonderful virtually seeing you, sharing my knowledge, and learning from you at the Recycling 101 and Waste Reduction Workshop!

There was a lot of ground to cover in a short amount of time, and there were plenty of resources that were mentioned in this workshop. I have shared a list of these items below, and if I’ve missed any or if you have other resources to share, please feel free to reach out to me with the details and I’d be happy to include them 🙂
