Why shouldn't they go in the trash?
dean, is that the sharpes container below the bottle?
Totally supportive of this, have participated at Clay Pit and it was impactful. Have to leave for another meeting.
Thank you Vicki
What about engaging the BHS students to help with the Clay Pit Pond clean up?
is bioplastic or corn starch wrapping a legitimate alternative for plastics?
Cig. Butts are the most littered item in the USA
I need to leave, I’m up at 5:00 am. Talk soon!
Patrick, before you go... I also clean up on Concord Ave and have approached the Golf Club for help...
please leave time for sharing ideas and experiences
Mike McAllister(MMcAllister@belmont.k12.ma.us), Dir of Human Capital, would be a good person to approach about finding the staff person who runs community service programs for students
Jeff, do you have the contact info for James Roth, ConCom Chair according to Belmont-ma.gov/conservation-commission
What can be done to encourage business to cut down on and when possible eliminate use of single use plastics?

Joshua - you next
What about involving the Garden club - they have helped beautify Belmont Center
Yes! I have contacted them, but will follow-up. Totally agree
Would you repeat wht it is that Dunkin is using that is toxic?
I have to jump in a few minutes for another call. Thank you everyone for joining and good to see some new faces.
I have done the same ride following the e river all the way to the casino
plastic is toxic. plastic with hot liquid contacting it is far worse. someone I know had cancer and she had switched to using only glass containers
micro plastics just dont break down in biological processes, they are alien to biology and only sunlight (very slowly) degrades them.
plastics break down into smaller pieces and eventually microplastics, and these have reached all over the planet, even in the deep see
Great discussion, need to leave.,
Thank you for your presentation. I may not be an official park ambassador but I will swing by Chenery during my walk with a bag in hand. Your slides were pretty eye-opening. Wish we could post what we pick up and share it with other Belmont residents. Thank you. I have to run. Terry
unrelated announcement, there is a more efficient wood-burning heater that is UL-listed (a legal, safe appliance rating) and will be available in December. the company is Liberator.
will be going now, thanks everyone for working on this
I also have to go. Dinner is waiting! Thank you very much for moving us forward.
