A Zero-Waste Junkie's Journey to Pesto

BY LISA PELLEGRINO
@ VOL 28 ON FEB 21, 2016

“Three R's! The waste hierarchy! It’s a hierarchy because reducing is more effective than reusing and reusing is more effective than recycling.”

In A Zero-Waste Junkie's Journey to Pesto from PechaKucha Night Atlanta’s 28th volume speaker Lisa Pellegrino discusses what she has learned while recovering from being a “zero-waste junky”. As part of her recovery she is ensuring that she is part of A (not THE) solution on a micro scale. Hear Lisa’s background in sustainability, where that background led her, and where she has followed that road to today… (Hint: pesto is part of it).

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, April 20th, 2016.
