Monthly Forum – Green Catwalk 2021
January 27, 2021 6:30p - 8:00p
It’s been a GreenHomeNYC tradition to kick off our year of programming with our Green Catwalk, a dynamic event in which our speakers showcase exciting developments in our sustainable world through a series of rapid-fire presentations.
This year’s presenters will share programs and projects that are redefining waste as a resource, moving us towards a more efficient, circular economy. Join us as we explore the many ways to “re” to decrease the size of both our carbon and our landfill footprints. The circular economy spurs economic development worldwide by redesigning, reducing, reusing, repurposing, recovering, refurbishing, regenerating, and recycling biological and technical materials to meet the growing resource needs of our consumptive society.
The world’s rate of consumption is at “1.75 times the earth’s carrying capacity, meaning we are using 75% more natural resources than we are regenerating each year,” says The Circular Economy Handbook. Find out what’s being done to help reverse that trend in fashion, food, water and waste, and learn what you can do to become part of the circularity movement.
