Zero Waste

Zero Waste

Does the term “Zero Waste” make any sense to you or is it like the term “Jumbo Shrimp”?  Come and learn what the term really means, and why it plays such a large part in our worldwide drive toward a circular economy, and keeping our trash from being sent to landfills, incinerators, and the ocean.  Mother Nature doesn’t waste – will Humankind learn from her? How can we improve on 9% of all plastic being recycled?

Short Bio: Karin Tome is retired from being a “Jill-of-all-trades”.

As Councilmember and Mayor of Brunswick, Maryland, she worked with community members, municipal/state/federal employees, and fellow legislators to advance sustainable policies and practices. As a volunteer, she continues to work with schools, activists, and non-profit organizations to learn and relay pertinent information about the environment, local planning, inclusivity, and other topics of concern. She and her husband have two grown children and are in the process of moving from Maryland to Pennsylvania, USA.
