Electric Vehicle Expo coming to Saint Paul’s

Saturday, September 15, 2018,
9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Have you ever thought about switching to an electric plug-in vehicle? At Sustainable Tallahassee’s EV Expo, you will have an opportunity to learn more about the electric car revolution happening across the nation and the world. They are fun to drive, less expensive and more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, better for the environment, promote local jobs, and reduce our dependence on oil. Don’t take our word for it. Come talk to EV owners and local dealers yourself at the EV Expo on September 15!

 

Harvest the Mosaic Garden

Our summer garden is still producing, and your family can join in the fun of harvesting vegetables to donate to Manna on Meridian Food Bank. In just a few minutes, you can water, pull a weed or two, pick ripe vegetables, and check for pests to help our garden thrive. We are so grateful for our volunteers! Contact Jessie Perry at perry386@msn.com to get involved.

 

September Eco-Tip:

Refresh Your Recycling Routine

Did you know Leon County has a recycling goal of 75% by the year 2020? Recycling helps divert trash from the landfill, saves valuable resources, and saves energy. It takes significantly less energy and resources to make new products from recycled materials than it does to process and manufacture them from raw materials. Much of what we use is discarded far too quickly compared to the resources it took to extract and refine the products, so it makes sense, economically and environmentally, to reuse these materials by recycling them. To see a detailed list of exactly what can and cannot be recycled in Leon County, check out the “What Can Be Recycled” list at http://cms.leoncountyfl.gov/growinggreen/Green-Topics/Waste-Reduction.
