The Sustainable Business Series presents a talk by Diane Cohen, Executive Director of Finger Lakes ReUse, titled "The Transformative Impacts of ReUse." This event will take place at 7 p.m. Tuesday, February 6, in the de Witt Lecture Hall (Zabriskie 106) on the Wells College campus. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.
Community ReUse Centers address the global waste problem and actively transform unwanted materials into valuable local assets. ReUse is a simple concept providing an avenue for supply chain feedstocks for entrepreneurs and businesses, and affordable materials for projects and people in need, simultaneously creating opportunities for local citizens including pathways to employment, skill-building, skill-sharing, and living wage jobs. The problems of textile waste, e-waste, construction & demolition debris, energy consumption and CO2 emissions are reduced as people empower themselves through the engaging activity of reuse.
This talk is part of the Center for Sustainability and the Environment and Sullivan Center for Business and Entrepreneurship's Sustainable Business Series. Wells is committed to providing access to all events; anyone needing assistance should contact Marian Brown, director of the Center for Sustainability and the Environment, as soon as possible.
