HSC Community Recycling Event
POSTPONED: This event has been postponed. While we hoped to hold it in April, it will most likely be the fall of 2021.
While we are in this time of COVID-19 and therefore are not able to host in-person events, we are focusing on virtual Monthly Sustainability Challenges. Each month we’ll focus on a different topic, and you’ll receive an email each week in the month to help you learn more about the topic and motivate you to practice sustainability in practical ways that work towards a healthy planet and healthy people. We’ll be doing a drawing each month for a chance to win a reusable cutlery set. Join the August Sustainability Challenge HERE on cleaning our air.
