"Join us Wednesday, November 14 for our next Grow Smart CLT event on Innovative Solutions to Waste Reduction.
As Charlotte's population grows, so does the need to find creative ways to reduce our waste, including food and yard waste. Locally, both the public and private sectors are tackling this issue, and we're excited to hear from local innovators about some new solutions to waste reduction that are being implemented right here in Mecklenburg County. Join us as we mingle, drink + think about sustainable solutions that can reduce our waste.
Food will be provided and is sponsored by Rivendell Farms of the Carolinas. Thank you!
We are proud to partner with Crown Town Compost to reduce waste generated by these events.
Tickets are $5 for non-Sustain Charlotte members (donate at least $5/month or $60/year) and free for members. Interested in becoming a member to attend the events for free? Click here.
We are excited to bring together David Valder, co-founder and co-owner of Crown Town Compost, Jeffrey Smithberger, director of Solid Waste Management for Mecklenburg County, Victoria Johnson, director of City of Charlotte Solid Waste Services, Damon Barron, founder of Treecycle America, and Marc Mataya, founder of Leaf Burrito to discuss and answer your questions!
These fun yet informative events dive into the multiple sustainability challenges that Charlotte faces due to our rapid growth. Our goal is to ensure that you not only walk away with a better understanding of the challenge but also at least one action you can take to help put Charlotte on a smarter path.
