Zero waste workshop
This past Sunday, we were honored to announce that the Garden club from Florida International University chose The Pleasant Garden to host their Zero Waste workshop on the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling the use of plastic. Their mission is to provoke people into achieving a more sustainable lifestyle. Various guest speakers attended the workshop, and they each spoke about being Zero Waste and its wide number of benefits to our environment. They also took the opportunity to speak about how we can make a great difference in our world.
No single use plastic
As you all may know, the use of single-use plastic has been withholding a detrimental effect on our planet Earth. Here at The Pleasant Garden, we care deeply about our environment and aspire to make it better one day at a time by being the only eco-friendly venue in the Redlands area. At our venue, we don’t allow the use of balloons or single-use plastics that could potentially harm our environment. We believe that you could still celebrate while still being mindful of Earth. To put into perspective, by using glass cups at a 100 person celebration, we save about 400 cups of plastic. That is saving the Earth from 400 cups of pollution. It may not sound like a lot, but over time it slowly starts to make a change. According to the Center of Biology, “There will be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050.” This is one of the many reasons why being environment friendly and living a sustainable lifestyle is crucial to obtain.
Thanks to the FIU Garden Club
With that being said, we are feeling fortunate that the Garden Club hosted their Zero Waste workshop here at The Pleasant Garden. It was a day filled with lots of impactful information and advice that can not only change your life but the world around you. The Earth is what we all have in common, so let’s take good care of it!
