Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel, Fran Reid and Patty Katz visit the Brookhaven Municipal Recycling Facility.
On Thursday, March 13 at 7 p.m., at Temple Beth-El, 5 Old Mill Road in Great Neck, Michelle will be joined by Laura Weinberg, President of the Great Neck Breast Cancer Coalition, Fran Reid and Patty Katz of Reach Out America, and Frank Morris, Executive Director of the Long Island Sierra Club Foundation for a panel discussion on recycling, reducing your carbon footprint (we’ll explain), and simple ways to reduce toxic exposures in the home.
The event, which is open to all, is sponsored by the Social Action Council of Temple Beth-El. Light refreshments will be served from 7 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. followed by introductory remarks from Jessica Balaban, Executive Director, Inter-Agency Task Force on Israeli Arab Issues, Jewish Defense Council. The audience will then have their choice of several conversations including Guilt Free Green before coming back together for closing remarks by Rabbi Shapiro.
Michelle, Fran and Patty will describe their dramatic visit to the Brookhaven Municipal Recycling Facility where they got a glimpse of a two-story mountain of plastic containers. A display of environmentally friendly products will be on hand as well as canvas shopping bags for your purchase.
Join us for a fun-filled way to dispel some urban myths about being Green without feeling guilty about not doing enough. Together, one step at a time, we can impact our environment for the better.
The event is co-sponsored by the Great Neck Park District, the Great Neck Water Pollution Control District, Great Neck Breast Cancer Coalition, Manhasset-Lakeville Water and Fire District, North Shore-LIJ Health System, Reach Out America and Sierra Club Foundation, Whole Foods Market.
