Say NO to Plastic: Beeswax Food Wraps Workshop
91% of plastic is not recycled! It ends up in landfills, where it takes many years to decompose. and pollutes oceans, rivers and streams.
The most pervasive plastic is the one-use bag, it directly damages wildlife; birds and animals become entangled and drown or ingest plastic and die of starvation when plastic blocks their intestines.
Cities and entire countries are now banning single use plastic bags. Eventually this will happen world-wide but what can we do in the meantime? Don’t use plastic wherever possible! One way is to substitute beeswax wraps and bags for food storage.
At this workshop, we’ll make beeswax wraps and you can take them home to use instead of plastic!
Adults and teens only may register for this event as the process involves hot wax.
There will be free refreshments and a door prize! Seating is limited so sign up now!
Eco-Action Tuesdays is sponsored by MGE and Willy St. Co-op.
