Once again this year, the Trash2Art reception will be a Zero Waste event. Thanks to our partners and thoughtful planning, the goal is to have an event in which none of its by-products are sent to a disposal site.
Our food and beverage sponsors, Le Bistro, Whole Foods-Fort Lauderdale and Emerald Isle Recycling will be providing items that require as little packaging as possible and are recyclable through our partners.
Choice Environmental will collect traditional recyclables such as wine bottles, paper, and cans. Rehrig Pacific will be providing the collection carts. Broward College's TerraCycle program will be recycling and upcycling plastic cups and other items that are included in their program. Edge Recycling will assist with the recycling of the less traditional items such as plastic film, nontraditional plastics and styrofoam. Trash to Treasure will provide composting of food waste and paper napkins through backyard composting.
At the event, our "trash talkers" will help guide visitors to the appropriate receptacles to dispose of items.
All cups, glasses, plates, and napkins used during the reception have been donated to Trash to Treasure.
Please join us on Thursday, September 15, 2011 from 6-8 PM at Art Serve in Fort Lauderdale.
