| Berkshire Green Drinks: Beyond Recycling|
|12:05PM / Wednesday, September 06, 2023|
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Andrew Ferrara, program manager of Berkshire Environmental Action Team's Zero Waste Initiative, will speak at the September Berkshire Green Drinks event at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, September 12, online via Zoom.
According to a press release: Learn about current projects and groups working to reduce waste in Berkshire County that go beyond just recycling. Get an inside look into the many recycling programs BZWI offers to the community, including conventionally not-recyclable items like toothbrushes and bread tags. Learn why special recycling programs are not the answer to our waste crisis and how BZWI plans to move beyond recycling as a solution by assisting individuals. Come away from this talk with some simple swaps for items in daily life that can be replaced for less wasteful substitutes, as well as some guiding principles that will help identify even more impactful ways to take action.
Berkshire Green Drinks (formerly Pittsfield Green Drinks) is an informal gathering that takes place once a month. A guest speaker talks for about 30 minutes beginning at 6 PM, and the presentation is followed by a discussion and Q&A. These nights are free and open to everyone with any environmental interest.
Berkshire Green Drinks is sponsored and organized by the Berkshire Environmental Action Team (BEAT).
