Vancouver, Wash. – Clark County’s Master Composter Recycler program is offering a series of free sustainable living webinars this spring. The three webinars will teach people simple things they can do to be kinder to the earth.

Pre-registration is required for all workshops and space is limited. To register for workshops, visit the Master Composter Recycler webpage. Participants will receive a confirmation email after successful registration.

Here are the upcoming workshops:

  • Green Cleaning: 7 to 8:30 pm Wednesday, May 12
  • Recycling Done Right: 7 to 8:30 pm Wednesday, May 19
  • Prevent Food Waste (in the first place): 7 to 8:30 pm Wednesday, May 26

The green cleaning webinar will teach participants how to make environmentally friendly alternatives to cleaning solvents that contain hazardous chemicals. The webinar teaches residents how to make three versatile household green cleaners. Participants will be eligible to receive a green cleaning kit with three products: all-purpose cleaner, window cleaner and a safer scrubber (supplies limited).

Proactive measures

The Recycling Done Right webinar explains what can and cannot go in the blue curbside recycling cart. The webinar teaches why it is better to throw some things out when in doubt rather than what is known as “wishcycling.” Attendees and community members are encourage to download the RecycleRight app, which has a search feature to find out if and where materials can be recycled.

The Prevent Food Waste (in the first place) webinar discusses ways to minimize food spoilage so you don’t have to send edible food to the landfill. Following the simple practices taught in the webinar will help you save money and the environment.

The Master Composter Recycler program educates the community about easy ways to reduce waste, increase recycling and rethink our impact on natural resources. For more information about the program, visit the website, call 564.397.7333 or email mcr@clark.wa.gov.
