Learn about ‘Zero Waste’ at Lunch with a Leader Tuesday

-A A +A

Lunch with a Leader will be at Mesa Library at 11:45 a.m. Tuesday. Five Los Alamos residents who are leaders in the field of “Zero Waste” will be the speakers. Sue Barns will talk about the Zero Waste Los Alamos team and food waste; Angelica Gurule will discuss recycling in general in the county and the efforts toward zero waste events (including concerts and other events); Tiffany Pegoda and Elchin Zafarov will educate the community about composting; and Jody Benson will talk about what the Zero Waste Restaurant Team has discovered about what some area restaurants are doing to go green.

Each of them will talk for about 10 minutes, which will allow lots of time to ask questions about this topic.
Barns grew up in Northern New Jersey but fell in love with Los Alamos during family visits. She came to work at LANL as an Oppenheimer Postdoctoral Fellow in microbiology in 1996 and remained until 2008.

Gurule serves as the Environmental Services manager for Los Alamos County.

Pegoda is the owner of Zia Waste, a new worm composting business in Los Alamos. In 2014, she received her certification in Sustainable Resource Management from the New Mexico Recycling Coalition and Penn State Altoona.
