Water is Life: Oyster Shell Recycling
July 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Water is Life: Oyster Shell Recycling with Alabama Coastal Foundation’s Mark Berte
Whether or not you like eating oysters, you will enjoy learning about the benefits they provide and the state’s oyster shell recycling program that is led by the Alabama Coastal Foundation. A major success story since it began in October 2016, oyster shells are collected from local restaurants which previously threw them away and then paid to take them to landfills! Join us Tuesday at noon to learn about the inclusive environmental stewardship approach used, what happens to the shells, and how the program continues to be sustained.
