Recycling isn’t the only way to lower your carbon footprint. Now composting is a viable option in the Asheville area. And don’t forget about reducing consumption and reusing what we have.

Come for a light lunch from 12:30 – 1:00, followed by zero waste children’s activities and games for kindergarten though fifth graders and their parents. Adults and kids will learn what is recyclable and compostable and how to cut down on trash that isn’t either. The Recycling Education Vehicle will be on site for further information and entertainment.

Adult classes from 1:00 – 2:00 will focus on moving toward zero waste at home, living simply, and reducing our carbon footprints by using less energy. In addition, exhibitors in the foyer will provide information and products to make these changes easier.

Parking is free in the Aloft garage on Lexington for the first hour and $1.25/hr thereafter. Enter the church by walking up the driveway from Aston St. Contact Jane Laping janelaping@sbcglobal.net or 828-772-0379 for more information.
