The sixth session of WASTED: Small Efforts for Big Change is THURSDAY, APRIL 29 at 6PM!


Did you know that 30% of carbon emissions are the result of consumption? Between manufacturing, transport, and waste, consumerism has a huge impact on the environment. An easy way to reduce your individual consumption, and save some money, is to learn how to repair household items rather than throwing them away for a replacement. Some communities host “repair cafes,” where participants can learn how to fix these items and get help from people with repair experience.
Join us on Thursday, April 29 for Part 6 of our 7-part series WASTED: Small Efforts for Big Change, where we will learn how to repair basic household items (lamps, clothing, etc.) and about the history of repair cafes and how to get one started in your community.
Janice Ehle/Meyer – Community Resource Manager, RiverCOG
Virginia Walton – Recycling Coordinator, Town of Mansfield
Judy Prill – Retired Environmental Analyst, CT DEEP
