Single-use disposable serviceware is an ordinary part of any takeout, delivery, or casual dining experience today – yet it generates an immense amount of garbage that often ends up as litter in the environment or contaminating recycling systems. Washington has a new state law aimed at reducing plastic waste and litter, and one component of this legislation specifically targets single-use food serviceware.
Join Clark County Green Business for a Morning Blend focused on energy programs and incentives with guest speakers from Clark Public Utilities. Matt Babbitts, Energy Resources Program Manager and Bart Hansen, Key Account Manager will be sharing about the opportunities for businesses in Clark County to tap into clean, renewable energy programs including Solar Net Metering Program, Green Lights Program, Electric Vehicle Program, and the Clean Energy Transformation Act (CETA) 100% carbon-free electricity mandates.
