League Of Women Voters Presents Going Green In Estes Park
The many aspects of Going Green in Estes Park will be presented at the next League of Women Voters meeting on Wednesday, February 25th at 9 a.m. in the Hondius Room of the library. A panel representing community efforts in several areas will describe the different avenues to achieving harmony with the environment and preserving and protecting our town’s natural resources.
The program will include an update on the LWV Recycling Committee’s efforts over the past year. The Committee will also introduce the Reusable Bag Challenge, initiated by the Colorado Association of Ski Towns (CAST), which will be coordinated in Estes Park by the Town of Estes Park and the LWV Recycling Committee. The goal of the Challenge, which will run from March 1-September 1, is to encourage shoppers to use reusable bags and thus reduce the number of single-use plastic bags.
The panel will include representatives from the Rocky Mountain National Park “green team,” local thrift shops, the Town of Estes Park wind and solar programs, Local Roots Co-op, and Sustainable Mountain Living.
There will be ample time for questions and discussion.
