Closing Remarks: Dave Chameides
Dave Chameides, AKA “Sustainable Dave,” kept all of his trash and recycling for an entire year in his basement to better understand his waste footprint; in the process, was able to cut his yearly trash output to a mere 30 pounds and live to tell the tale. His story became an international sensation.
Chameides is the Director of Sustainability at the Shalhevet School in Los Angeles. He continues to teach Chasing Sustainability, the environmental seminar he created 3 years ago, to schools, businesses and other groups.
