Event: April Meeting: Save Money and Go Zero Waste

April 7, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Come learn how Zero Waste can save our planet for our kids while saving money too. In 2019, Tim Oey bicycled 5000 miles from San Francisco to Boston, gave 254 talks about zero waste at schools, aquariums, and museums, and raised money to combat climate change. Tim’s household generates just a quart of trash a month, his house generates more energy than it uses, and his transportation is carbon free as well.

About the speaker:
Tim is a long time cycling and environmental advocate. In addition to a long career in high tech at Harvard, Fidelity, Apple, Sun, and Adobe, he was the VP of Rides for the Charles River Wheelers in Boston, President of the Friends of Stevens Creek Trail, vice chair for the Sunnyvale Bicycle and Pedestrian Commission, and a founding board member of the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition (SVBC). He is also a bicycling instructor who loves to teach people how to bike and how to bike better.
