Food Waste and You
Thursday March 24th, 5-6:30pm
A free virtual panel discussion sponsored by the American Association of University Women Napa Valley Chapter will be holding a virtual discussion on how SB 1383 might affect you and your food waste. SB 1383 mandates that organic waste across California be recycled via green bins (maybe you think of them as the yard waste bins). The AAUW panel will talk about new disposal habits in the kitchen and the potential reduction in greenhouse gases that accompany this shift in how our food waste is processed. Register for the event here.
