Penn State Berks Sustainability Team presents RACING TO ZERO

Wednesday, April 20, 5 p.m.
Room 5, Luerssen Building, Penn State Berks, Reading, Pennsylvania
FREE and open to the public
Post-screening panel discussion

Racing To Zero is a quick-moving, upbeat documentary presenting new solutions to the global problem of waste. By simply substituting the word “resource” for the word “garbage,” a culture can be transformed, and a new wealth of industries can emerge. Three years ago the mayor of San Francisco pledged to achieve zero waste by 2020. Racing To Zero tracks San Francisco’s waste stream diversion tactics and presents innovative new solutions to waste. This film documents a surprising, engaging and inspiring “race to zero.”

The Penn State Berks Sustainability Team, led by Mahsa Kazempour, associate professor of science education, has a variety of activities and events scheduled in April for the campus' first annual Sustainability Month celebration. These activities and events, planned and coordinated by various faculty, staff, and students, will focus on raising awareness and encouraging personal and community action.
