Earth Day Workshop and Book Signing

In celebration of Earth Day, join us to help launch a new topical book with a workshop on managing individual plastic waste and a signing!

The book: Material Value: More Sustainable, Less Wasteful Manufacturing of Everything from Cell Phones to Cleaning Products

How many of us remember what we learned in high school chemistry? This book will act as a quick refresher, allowing you to easily understand what you need to know to make choices that are less wasteful and less harmful to people and the environment. Learn about the challenges and opportunities facing the manufacturing world in this highly readable perspective on materials and environmental sustainability. Finalist in the 2019 San Francisco Writers Contest.

Julia L F Goldstein, author of Material Value, will discuss what’s changed since Earth Day 2018’s End Plastics Pollution campaign and why the 2019 theme, Protect our Species, is still about plastics. Learn strategies to improve your recycling practices and reduce your consumption of single-use plastics. Discover how your efforts can help our planet and make every day one in which we care for the Earth.
