Earth Month Movie Night
Thursday, April 11th
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Whole Foods Market Wash Park Parking Lot, Free

Free screening of our Earth Month Movie "Watershed"

 

Popcorn and soda will be provided. Movie will happen outside (weather permitting) in our parking lot!

 

Whiskey is for drinkin'. Water is for fightin'," says Jeff Ehlert, a fly fishing guide in Rocky Mountain National Park, recalling a well-worn saying heard throughout the Colorado River basin. As the most dammed, dibbed and diverted river in the world struggles to support thirty million people across the western United States and Mexico, the peace-keeping agreement known as the Colorado River Pact is reaching its limits.

How can we meet the needs of a growing population in the face of rising temperatures and lower rainfall in an already arid land? How do we balance the competing interests of cities, agriculture, recreation, wildlife and indigenous communities with rights to the water?

In Watershed, Ehlert joins six others living and working in the Colorado River basin who reflect a compelling new water ethic as they share their stories and illuminate a path of coexistence with enough for all. This film was made in memory of Bradford Delano Smith (1958–2008), a deeply committed environmentalist who passionately embraced life.

Narrated by Robert Redford. Directed by Mark Decena. Produced by James Redford, Jill Tidman, Renata Foucre and Kontent Films for the Redford Center. Executive Producers: Robert Redford, Teri Heyman and Lee Bycel. Content Advisor: Barry Nelson, NRDC.

E-Waste Recycling Event
Saturday, April 13th
10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Whole Foods Market Wash Park Parking Lot, Free

E-waste is a growing problem in our communities because electronics contain dangerous toxins and are rarely disposed of sustainably

New legislation was recently passed that will ban residents of Colorado from disposing of electronics in landfills.

Do your part to support this law and create change by recycling all of your electronics with ethical recyclers like SustainAbility.

We are recognized by the EPA and the State of Colorado as a large quantitiy electronics recycler.

All items with a cord will be taken!  Most items are free but there is a scale from $3-$8 for items with a screen depending on size.  We will NOT be taking refrigerators, air conditioners, light bulbs, oil or gasoline.
