Altadena Heritage’s Third Thursday Series: Toward a Zero-Waste Future

Join Altadena Heritage on Earth Day Eve, Thursday, April 21, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Altadena Community Center – 730 East Altadena Drive .

Bring your questions about recycling, landfills, pollution, green shopping, climate change and more for our environmental and conservation experts, including:

Marialyce Pedersen is an environmentalist, journalist, author, researcher, teacher and Altadena resident who serves as a senior representative for the Walt Disney Company’s Corporate Citizenship Environment and Development Team. She will focus on how every individual can practice a zero-waste lifestyle at home, work, school and in the community.

Morey Wolfson has 40 years of experience in energy and environmental policy, including a stint at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and is currently a member of Pasadena’s Environmental Advisory Commission, serving as its representative on the Hahamongna Watershed Park Advisory Committee. He will provide background information and updates about the status of Pasadena’s delayed polystyrene (aka Styrofoamâ„¢) ban.

Additionally, leaders of the Zero Waste Alta/Pasa-dena Coalition, including AH Board member Michiko Lynch, will introduce their GOOD-TO-GO Campaign, a grassroots movement to ban the use of polystyrene containers in Pasadena and surrounding areas.

There will be a Q&A session after the presentation.

This program is free and open to the public as part of Altadena Heritage’s “Third Thursday” Series. Light refreshments will be served; please BYOC (Bring Your Own Cup) to help make this a Zero-Waste event!
