Meet T&C's Sustainability Director
@ the October 12th Zero Waste Meeting
The final Zero Waste meeting of the year will be Saturday, October 12, 11am-12:30pm, at Sotheby's Realty, 240 Winslow Way East. Tony D'Onofrio will speak about waste reduction, packaging choices and more the first hour, with the ZW business meeting concluding the final half hour.
Pop in to the Pop-up!
Are you still wondering about recycling on (and off) Bainbridge? Do you know about all the other lending libraries on the island? The easiest ways to reduce and reuse? What can go in your yard waste container besides yard waste? (Hint: It's a four-letter word.) For these and any other burning questions, Zero Waste is setting up shop in the Bainbridge Public Library's meeting room on Saturday, October 19, from noon to 4pm. Come and chat. Also, free kitchen compost buckets and reusable bags are available while supplies last.
The Scrappy Art Lab is now up and running! Rachel Knudson opened this creative space just one month ago. SAL is open to all ages to investigate cool materials, learn a technique or two, practice your skills, and find new confidence in using your hands to make stuff.

´╗┐Want to offer up used materials? Call or email Rachel for an appointment.
Light String Recycling
Starting your outside holiday decorating early? Take any broken strings of lights to Lowe's, now through December 24. The metal in the strings will be recycled.
Got Corelle?
If you have any dinner or dessert-sized Corelle plates that you no longer want, the Zero Waste Tableware Lending Library is always looking for donations of this particular brand of plate, since they are more compact in stacking than other types. Please email us if you have any to give. Thank you!
Costume Swap

Green up Hallowe'en and save money in the process by donating, exchanging, and/or choosing a costume at KidiMu's annual costume swap.
Anybody can pick a costume without leaving one or vice versa now through October 30 during the museum's regular hours, Monday-Saturday, 10am-4pm, and Sunday, 12-4pm.
