Earth Day 2021
In celebration of Earth Day this year, StopWaste is doing things a little differently. In addition to our own events and activities, we’re partnering with cities and community partners across Alameda County for a coordinated celebration, honoring the diversity of our communities, spotlighting the opportunities to take action and work together to build a more resilient environment. Whether you’re interested in a workshop about how to electrify your home, reduce wasted food, or build healthy soil, there’s something here for everyone! Scroll through the events and resources and be sure to check back frequently as we continue to add to the full calendar at right.
