The Mennonite Heritage Center, 565 Yoder Road, Harleysville announces a Zero Waste Living Presentation scheduled for March 8, 2023 from 6:00 pm. Enjoy the book Living More with Less by Doris Janzen Longacre? In 1980, before living simply and “green” became trendy and popular, Doris Janzen Longacre, author of the enormously popular More-with-Less Cookbook (over 900,000 sold), wrote Living More with Less, a practical guide for living in simple, sustainable, and healthy ways-ways that keep the future of the planet, and the plight of poor people, in mind. A small glimpse into Longacre’s book offers the suggestion that we look at food in our homes as zero waste. Zero Waste Living is a life-style choice that supports the elimination of trash and the adoption of practices that emulate sustainable natural life cycles. This presentation will focus on basic Zero Waste theory and practice that you can easily implement into your life choices and begin the process of reducing the volume of trash you generate. Learn how this cycle can promote a healthy outlook on our communities and our family living.
