April 22, 2020 marks 50 years of Earth Day celebrations. So what better time to talk about re-imagining, researching, and re-engineering waste streams into valuable products?
Join us at 9 a.m. PST / Noon EST for a webinar about Recology’s “Waste Zero Mission,” presented by Derek Ruckman and hosted by PNNL's Corinne Drennan.
On April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans — at the time, 10% of the total population of the United States — took to the streets, parks and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment in massive coast-to-coast rallies. By the end of the year, the first Earth Day led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts.
Today, it’s widely recognized as the largest secular observance in the world, marked by more than a billion people every year as a day of action to change human behavior and provoke policy changes.
