On Thursday, December 12th, Hendersonville Green Drinks welcomes Eric Bradford, Director of Operations for Asheville GreenWorks, who will talk about their newly formed Plastic Reduction Taskforce and the locally installed Mud Creek Trash Trout. Bradford will also discuss the French Broad Litter Reduction Program, and other programs that focus on reducing our dependence on single-use plastics. He’ll also touch on how reducing our plastic consumption can protect fragile ecosystems, and ways that you can get involved.
