Zero Waste Conference Headed To HSU

Humboldt State’s 2018 Zero Waste Conference will feature a week of food, workshops, speakers, documentaries, panels and more, seeking to “Redefine Waste in an Age of Capitalism.”

The conference, which runs Monday, Nov. 5 through Friday, Nov. 9, will open with a banquet and keynote address from keynote speaker Tedd Ward, Director of the Del Norte Solid Waste Management Authority. Ward has promoted the creation of jobs from discards and environmental design, ending welfare for wasting, and zero waste for the last two dozen years.

Other topics include homesteading, deconstructing a “cheap society,” composting, the current state of recycling, bicycle learning, and sustainability.
