SES logo 2015Kirkland, Wash –    Are you curious what happens to your recycling after it’s picked up at the curb? Do you want to know how plastic bottles get separated from aluminum cans? Are you puzzled how Everest Creek gets to Lake Washington? Do you wonder what happens in the storm drains? See for yourself on tours offered through the 4th annual Kirkland Sustainability Education Series. Watch one couple survive on discarded food alone at our Outdoor Movie Night at Carillon Point – and learn what you can do at home to waste less food. This biannual series aims to teach Kirkland residents how to live more sustainably through tours, movies, and hands-on workshops. Space is limited so sign up today for any or all of these free learning opportunities at http://kirklandpw.eventbrite.com.
