UPCOMING EVENTS

Rethinking what we waste

September 7, 2018 // 7:30AM - 9:00AM

The average American generates 4.4 pounds of trash - every single day. Trash threatens public health, pollutes our waterways and atmosphere, and costs the country approximately $200 billion each year in solid waste management. While litter of all sorts puts our ecosystem in jeopardy, there’s an opportunity for each of us to reduce what is thrown away, recycle more, and refuse unneeded items that would otherwise end up in the landfill.

This summer Southface launched “Talk Trash,” an initiative to raise awareness about how each of us can make small changes that have the potential to make a big positive impact for the planet. #TalkTrash pledge takers received a wealth of tips, expert advice, and resources to help them send less stuff to landfills, and show others how easy it is to do the same.

The conversation continues at the Sustainable Atlanta Roundtable, which features local organizations who’ve taken the #TalkTrash pledge. Our panelists will share their insight and best practices on how implementing small changes at home and at work can result in big benefits for the environment.
