Slide 1: 

A project of Sustainable Bainbridge in partnership with the Historic Lynwood Theatre

“I have yet to find in any traditional language words for ‘waste,’ ‘disposable’ or ‘trash,’ because all traditional knowledge knows that there’s no such thing.When you say you’re going to throw something away, where is away? There is no such thing.” -Julia Butterfly Hill :

Waste is a REOURCE out of place

CHOOSE if to create waste and where it goes. : 

CHOOSE if to create waste and where it goes. Currently, more than two-thirds of products, packaging and organics discarded by households, businesses and institutions is wasted (buried in landfills or incinerated). Many communities are diverting 50% or more through waste prevention, reuse, recycling or composting. -- Grassroots Recycling Network Bainbridge’s trash ends up in a landfill down in Oregon. How can we send away less to be buried? Let’s take a look…

REUSE! After all, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure : 

REUSE! After all, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure Join the 1600+ online members of Bainbridge Island Freecycle, and offer up items you no longer want. Visit freecycle.org. Builders Bargains, operated by Habitat for Humanity, accepts usable construction materials and some appliances. There’s a drop-off site as you head towards Poulsbo. Check out habitat.org under reStores. Local thrift sites take gently used items. The Bargain Boutique (benefiting Children’s Hospital) and Goodwill (in the Ace Hardware parking lot) are two such examples.

When you can’t reuse, RECYCLE! : 

When you can’t reuse, RECYCLE! Recycling is free at the Bainbridge Disposal transfer station on Vincent Road. There’s a Dumpster for the usual: mixed paper, newspaper, cans, bottles, and #5 plastic containers, plus one for cardboard. But, did you know you can also recycle… Compact fluorescent bulbs Computers, monitors, and TV’s Batteries Scrap metal Large appliances (for a cost)

But what’s even better than reusing and recycling?REFUSING!!! : 

But what’s even better than reusing and recycling?REFUSING!!! At a restaurant: “Water, please, no straw.” In a store: “No bag, thanks, I brought my own.” At an event: “We’ll just share a program.” In what other situations can you make do without?

THINK ABOUT THIS…For every trash can you put out at the curb, 71 trash cans’ worth of waste has already been created in the processes used to extract resources and manufacture them into products and packaging.Reducing the environmental and social impacts of these 71 cans - resource wars, pollution, deforestation, species loss, fossil fuel use, etc. – is what zero waste is all about. - Ecocycle Times :
