ptk event: Zero Waste--­­From Trash to Cash

Aloha kakou,

This coming Monday, April 26th, the Phi Theta Kappa honor society will host a forum titled "Zero Waste – From Trash to Cash," with a panel featuring JoAnn Yukimura, former mayor and council member; John Harder, former solid waste manager of Kauai and Maui Counties; and Pam Lightfoot-Burrell of Zero Waste Kaua'i.

Speakers will take you on a journey from the old mindset of "mining the earth, making stuff, using stuff, and throwing away stuff," a paradigm that is destroying the earth with ever increasing landfills and taxpayer costs, to a new world of "Zero Waste" where Reduce, Re­Use and Recycle will contribute jobs and businesses to the new economy. Come hear the possibilities of a Zero Waste Kauai, a future that will be more sustainable, more beautiful, and more prosperous by how we manage our "stuff."

The forum will be held on Monday, April 26th, in the Library at Kaua'i Community College from noon to 1:15 pm. The public is welcome.

See you there. If you have any questions, please contact Alan Boyes, Anne McKenna, or Jeff Mexia. A promotional flyer is below. Me ke aloha... Alan, Anne, and Jeff
