Citizen Science


Sustainable Living with Zero Waste

Join us as we investigate the current state of our environment and how our consumption impacts the world around us. Learn about ways you can decrease your impact, including using zero waste principles and composting. We will also discuss the current state of recycling and tips on becoming a savvy recycler. Presented by Meredith & Kevin Keet, and Terry Grove, and Dr. Elliott Campbell.

Thursday • November 1
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Downtown Library • 224 Church St.

About the presenters:

Dr. Elliott Campbell is an Associate Professor and the Gliessman Presidential Chair in Water Resources and Food System Sustainability in the Environmental Studies Department at UC Santa Cruz. His research emphasizes the use of computer models to understand climate change. This work has led to awards from the National Science Foundation, appearances in media ranging from NPR to The New York Times, and consultations to the U.S. EPA and other government agencies.

Meredith and Kevin Keet, Founders The Zero Shop
We started The Zero Shop while traveling around the world with our two children. We were struck by the devastation caused by plastic waste and pollution and wanted to do more to make it easier for individuals and businesses to decrease their waste. We have significantly cut our waste following basic zero waste principles and structuring our lives to decrease our impact. We hope to help others do the same!

Terry Grove, Retired Educator
I have become more and more concerned about the waste that our culture is producing, and the effect it has on our environment. I recently took an extremely informative and interesting Master Recycling class which gave me many avenues to help reduce waste in my own life. I will be sharing some of what I learned and offering easy ways to gain more information on reducing, reusing and recycling.

Citizen Science is a collaboration between the Santa Cruz Public Libraries; the Santa Cruz Children's Museum of Discovery (SCCMOD), and the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC).

We invite you to join us every first Thursday of the month for a presentation and Q&A with local experts and researchers in the field discussing life science, ecology, geology, genetics, climatology and more. Let’s connect, inspire and inform each other!
