Green Living: Beyond the Bin

February 20, 2020, 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

| $15
Green Living: Beyond the Bin. Rethinking recycling habits.

Have you ever thought about the lifecycle of a plastic bag from the grocery store or a water bottle from the vending machine? During the Beyond the Bin program, we’ll learn about some of the negative impacts of single-use plastics and other types of marine debris on coastal ecosystems before exploring new, creative ways to reduce, recycle and reuse plastic material.  

Lea King-Badyna, executive director of Keep Golden Isles Beautiful, will discuss local cleanup and recycling initiatives taking place in the Golden Isles before leading the group in a hands-on recycling activity. Jennifer Zamudio, owner and designer of Dot and Army Sustainable Everyday Goods, will share her story about building a sustainable business out of reusable materials. Participants will also have the opportunity to redesign packaging material and create their own reusable bags!  

Registration is required by Feb. 14. Register online here. Contact Kayla Clark at kayla270@uga.edu or 912-598-3345 with questions.
