One of the most impactful ways to go green is in our relationship with clothing. Investing in clothing that will last and finding second life for well-loved clothes are just some of the ways to be sustainable in fashion. See more tips from WM in Everett Herald: https://bit.ly/3JZKA9I

Seasonal cleaning is for fall, too! Turn over a new leaf this autumn by making waste reduction a daily habit. Start by asking if an item can be reused, recycled, or composted instead of going into the garbage. Then, look around and see where you can replace single-use items with reusables when they run out. See how much you can reduce by taking our quiz on the Everett Herald: https://bit.ly/3Cn5rjb.

Smile alert! This guy has been faithfully watching our Waste Management trucks and drivers for years. We thought that deserved a little recognition, so we sent over a miniature WM cart. His family sent us the happy response! #WMFanPhotos

At Waste Management we wear our sustainability on our sleeves. Our teams now wear new uniforms, each made from two dozen recycled plastic bottles. They're high quality, highly visual and we're told, highly comfortable. That's our version of high fashion!

Tomorrow, Tuesday, August 17th at 9:30am PT, I'll teach a scrappy cooking class for Washington State Recycling Association.

From the class description:

In this cooking demo, Anne-Marie Bonneau will demonstrate how to make satisfying fried rice, using ingredients you already have on hand. She’ll also discuss her strategies for eating all the food you buy, and explain why wasting less food leads to greater creativity, more fun in the kitchen and tastier meals.

We will also have a presentation from Jade Monroe, with the Department of Ecology. Jade is the Food Waste Specialist and will be sharing information on the Use Food Well Washington Plan! Jade and her team in Ecology’s Solid Waste Management program have been busy compiling and facilitating a plan to meet Washington’s food waste reduction goals by 2030.
Why is Washington state aluminum can scrap only worth .37 per pound when in California it's worth 1.75 per pound? Why does Waste Management force customers to recycle and charge instead of rebate the material back onto the bill? This system is a total scam and people have no way out.
