After Lunch Learning with Ridwell
June 22, 2019 @ 1:15 pm - 2:15 pm
How to Waste Less this Year with Ridwell co-founder, Ryan Metgzer
6/22, 1:15pm in the Beit Midrash
Do you get confused on what can and can’t be recycled? Do you have things around your house that you think still might be useful to others in the community? Are you tired of driving all over town trying to get rid of hard-to-recycle items? If the answer to any of those questions is ‘yes,’ then this after lunch discussion is for you! Ryan Metzger faced these same questions in his house and discovered there were many options for reusing and recycling their old things that he wasn’t aware of. Thinking others might face similar challenges, he and his 6-year-old son offered to pick up hard-to-recycle categories from neighbors and, before they knew it, over 4k Seattle residents had joined their cause known as Owen’s List. Their project has since evolved into a concept called Ridwell that makes it easy to waste less. They offer bi-weekly pickups of 5 categories that might otherwise be sent to a landfill and serve as a community resource for the best destination for anything you’d like to get rid of. Come with questions and start making space for the things that matter!
