BYO Outreach at Flagstaff Farmer's Market

This is a great audience as many people will be utilizing bags to carry products purchased, as well as plates, cups, and mugs for the prepared food and beverages consumed at the market. 

You are welcome to volunteer for all or part of the market. If interested, please reach out to Dylan at dlenzen@flagstaffaz.gov or 928-213-2158.

B.YO. (Bring Your Own) Campaign Tabling

In April, we will be officially kicking off a new campaign we have been working on called the BYO Campaign or the Bring Your Own Campaign. Our goal for this campaign is to reduce single-use product waste (coffee cups, plastic water bottles/cups, and plastic bags) and to encourage educational attainment of why this is important for our community. We want to get the word out about this campaign.

This tabling event will be at various grocery stores, coffee shops, and determined destinations around town (see event description for details). At these tabling events you will promote the campaign, provide resources to community members, and hand out giveaways related to the campaign.

If interested in volunteering, please contact Brianna Magary at brianna.magary@flagstaffaz.gov or 928-213-2172

Earth Day

There are multiple ways to get involved in this year's Earth Day festivities. There will be a community cleanup that starts at 9 AM and Master Recyclers have participated in the past by educating fellow volunteers about which items can be collected for recycling. 

The actual Earth Day Celebration will start at 11 AM. Master Recyclers will have a table that can be used to provide recycling outreach, educate residents about food waste, or any other activities you have in mind. Depending on how many people are interested, we may have to break the time down into smaller slots, so more people can get a chance to get some hours in. 

If interested, please contact Dylan Lenzen, dlenzen@flagstaffaz.gov or 928-213-2158.

Coconino County Employee Earth Day Celebration

This will be at the County's employee Earth Day celebration. The event is Thursday, April 19th from 11am-1pm on the County Courthouse Lawn. One of the themes is waste reduction; that area will have a recycling wheel, an office supply swap, information on county recycling, recycling drop-off for the Hazardous Products Center, and hopefully a reusable Keurig prize giveaway. We were hoping to get one or two Master Recyclers to represent the program who can talk about Flagstaff City specific recycling.  There will be pizza and it should be a fun way for a person or two to get 2 of their volunteer hours. 

If interested please reach out to Lauren Bernas from the County's Green Team (lbernas@coconino.az.gov).
