Zero Waste results for Portland USGP
It was a cold, wet, and windy weekend in Portland Dec. 1-2 for the final round of the US Gran Prix Series, but that didn't stop Jen and the team from pulling off another successful Zero Waste event. Special thanks to Robert from 1-800-Got-Junk for taking care of hauling our recyclables to the recycling facility and our compostables to the compost facility.
Thanks to all the eco-friendly folks in Portland, the weekend achieved the highest diversion rate of the USGP Series!
Diversion Rate: 83%
Resources Saved: 1.8 trees, 535.5 kilowatt hours of energy, 493 gallons of water and diverted 1350 pounds of compostable materials from the landfill.
