In a presentation to parishioners on a recent Sunday, Suzan outlined the basics of composting and the several opportunities residents have to compost food waste in NYC. Suzan also led them through the basics of recycling using a couple of bags of household items and covering which recyclables go in which bag. She urged her audience to consult the NYC Department of Sanitation website when in doubt.
A lively discussion ensued, with parishioners demonstrating their concern for the environment.
It is great to know that our parishioners care about the environment and the 20% of NYC’s waste stream which is food waste. This presentation was step forward in St. Ann’s participation to achieve a sustainable Brooklyn.
