Going green means pursuing practices that can lead to more environmentally friendly and ecologically responsible decisions and lifestyles, which can help protect the environment and sustain its natural resources for current and future generations.
One way we can reduce waste is by asking all of our residents to bring their own cutlery (plates, forks, knives, spoons, and cups) to the monthly Birthday Potluck events. That way, we are not polluting our planet with plastic forks and knives that we throw away after each Birthday Potluck Dinner.
We are encouraging everyone to do so and our incentive is that those who bring their own cutlery will have their names entered in a raffle to win a Ralphs Grocery Store gift card.
Our first attempt last Thursday was a success! Most people brought their own cutlery ,and some were creative and brought lightweight reusable plastic cutlery. Well done, NoHo Senior Arts Colony! Mother Nature is grateful for all your efforts.
