The coronavirus pandemic has changed all of our lives but social distancing does not mean we have to stop learning or stop advocating to protect our environment… and our health. David Terry, one of our Green Sanctuary partners, suggested we hold a Zoom meeting sometime soon so we can talk about possible ideas going forward. Great idea! If I were to set up an impromptu Zoom meeting this Monday evening June 22, say at 7 pm, would you be able to join us? Contact Jeanne Nightingale and she will send you a link.
In the meantime, here are a few timely upcoming events:
- Saturday, June 20, 1- 3 pm (tomorrow!) – One Stop Drop Recycling Event 6/20/20. Cincinnati Recycles. City of Cincinnati, Office of Environment and Sustainability and Keep Cincinnati Beautiful have once again joined forces to bring you a super, mega recycling event Saturday, June 20th from 12-3! Apologies for the short notice recyclers! Rescheduling, venue changes, furloughs, and the like have been challenging, but we are so happy to be able to offer this service again. We’re hopeful that those of you that were anticipating participating in this event when it was originally scheduled in April might still have items.
