Author: Karine Valle - President of PMC
PMC organized an event in collaboration with the sustainability club, the Green Life Management. The event enlightened the audience about the zero-waste lifestyle and how to cut down on waste expenses in day-to-day life.
Patricia Schavarosk, one of the speakers, shared her knowledge about the sustainability concept, zero waste movement, and 4R (Rethink, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) to implement to pursue a more sustainable life.
Flavia Reis shared some initiatives and tips that are easy to apply, and it`s an excellent start to a new green lifestyle, such as:
Keep the recyclable waste separately by remembering to use the correct bins
Avoid using plastic bags and bottles by reusing the water bottle, reusable grocery bag, and carrying all the essential things in the backpack
Minimize the use of car or public transportation by choosing one day a week as a car-free day
The last topic was present by Tanja Jancic-Turner. She spoke about evaluating the risk of going into a zero-waste lifestyle and managing the risk by addressing them correctly.
