While researching ways to help reduce that waste and how to bring those ideas to the health department, I stumbled upon Saint Louis Earth Day.

“While starting with office work to prep for the big Earth Day festival, I quickly found other facets of SLED that were of great interest to me I could get involved in. I started working educational booths for the Green Dining Alliance to promote and educate the public on the certification process and the positive impact it’s making for its members.

I’m looking forward to more opportunities SLED has to offer and some great chances to make a difference while enjoying events in my community!”

June 9, 2015

At the 15th Annual St. Louis Symposium on June 3rd, that is EXACTLY the question we asked. Over 120 people joined us in search of the answer.
