Looking for some inspiration on how you can make some earth-friendly changes in 2024?

Wondering what you can really do about plastic?

Join us on Tuesday, January 23, 2024 at 6:30pm at the Teaneck Library Auditorium (at 840 Teaneck Road, Teaneck, NJ) to learn simple yet effective ways to reduce your own plastic consumption with Eve O. Schaub, humorist and author of Year of No Garbage. Book signing after the presentation. Books will be available for purchase thanks to The Curious Reader, Glen Rock, NJ.

This event is co-sponsored by Teaneck Creek Conservancy, Teaneck Public Library, and Puffin Cultural Forum.

In Year of No Garbage, Eve O. Schaub, stunt memoirist extraordinaire, tackles her most difficult challenge to date: garbage. Convincing her husband and two daughters to go along with her, Schaub attempts the seemingly impossible: living in the modern world without creating any trash at all. For an entire year. And- as it turns out- during a pandemic. In the process, Schaub learns some startling things: that modern recycling is broken, and single stream recycling is a lie. That flushable wipes aren’t flushable and compostables aren’t compostable. That plastic drives climate change, fosters racism, and is poisoning the environment and our bodies at alarming rates, as microplastics are being found everywhere. Year of No Garbage is Super Size Me meets the environmental movement.

With her humor and engaging storytelling, Schaub will inform and motivate you to make a positive impact on our planet. Whether you’re a seasoned eco-warrior or just starting to explore ways to live more sustainably, this event is for you.
