Household waste is filling local landfills, leaching toxic chemicals into the ground and water near people’s homes. No single person can solve this problem, but a person can help.

Join the Fond du Lac Public Library on Wednesday, April 20 at 6 p.m. in the McLane Room for a program on Zero-Waste Living. During the 90-minute discussion, discover tips for limiting your carbon footprint and living waste-free, with a focus on being zero-waste in the home. This is a step that can save money and the environment by doing things such as buying in bulk and avoiding single-use plastics. 

Bring ideas to share as well; the goal will be to use this program to start a Zero-Waste Resource Guide for Fond du Lac. 

To participate, register at starting April 6.

Looking for another way to reduce your carbon footprint? Join the library Wednesday, April 20 from 11 am-noon in the McLane Room for our Computer Help Class on Organizing Your Email. While email may seem like a zero-waste alternative to printed letters, email storage uses electricity. Reduce the amount of energy you use by paring down the number of emails in your inbox with tips from the Fond du Lac Public Library.

To participate, register at starting April 6.
