STAR’s Fourth Annual Reuse Tour: Root Architects
June 11, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The State of Texas Alliance for Recycling’s Reuse Council’s annual Reuse Tour is in El Paso this year! Texas is a big state, so don’t fret if it’s a little further than you care to drive, because we’re hosting our tour virtually this year!
The tour will be spread across three Fridays in June, during lunch, on the 4th, 11th, and 25th. We’ll feature a different reuse organization each week, and have built in time for small group networking rooms.
Admission is free, though donations to STAR are encouraged.
