Zero Waste in Design and Construction

12:30 p.m. | Thursday, February 14, 2019

The current waste and plastic pollution crisis is considered one of the world's top environmental issues. New programs and policies are being developed locally, however, to combat this crisis and encourage sustainable practices, with new initiatives aimed at decreasing plastic consumption and construction waste. Join sustainability and design experts to learn more about these strategies and explore local case studies where they have been implemented, including construction projects that reduce waste by repurposing existing materials and structures.
