Blog | Santa Monica College Zero Waste Guide Coming Soon

Guide will help students save money while saving the planet with tips on how to recycle and more.

Students in the Recycling & Resource Management program at Santa Monica College will soon publish a Student’s Guide to Zero Waste at Santa Monica College.

The first-of-its-kind guide will consist of easy-to-use tips and a primer on zero waste that can help students—and everybody else—save money while saving our planet.

Tips show how to easily reduce, reuse and recycle for water, materials, energy and more. It will come as text, slideshow and a series of fun video public service announcements prepared by the participating students.

The video public service announcements will be featured as video blogs on the CEUS website/Facebook site. The guide will also premiere at a celebrity eco-benefit event entitled “Cut the Plastics.”

Reducing our usage of plastics, which often end up discarded and are a major contributor to ocean pollution, is a great way to achieve zero waste and save money.

The benefit will be held Wednesday, Dec. 5 at the Improv Theater at 8162 Melrose Ave. in Hollywood from 7-9:30 p.m. The benefit show will include special performers, red carpet celebrities and a holiday auction to benefit SMC Center for Environmental & Urban Studies. For tickets and/or for more information, call (323) 651-2583. Tickets are regularly priced at $15; and $10 for students over 18 years with Student ID.

Great idea. Hopefully this will spread to other local colleges and throughout the US. http://greatgiftideasforboyfriend.com/
