Recycling has been in the news for the past year, from China's embargo on our recycling to how and why we need to recycle correctly.


Claire Galkowski, the longtime Director of the fifteen-town South Shore Recycling Cooperative and lifelong waste hater, will do a deep dive into impacts from some everyday consumer products, both upstream and down.  She will explain how recycling works, and provide practical tools to Reduce, Reuse, and “Recycle Smart”.

The talk is part of the 2019 WaterWatch Lecture Series.  It will inspire new ways to think about “stuff,” and show how we can be gentler to our forests, streams, oceans and atmosphere.
