Talk with Noel Smyth about Zero Waste

Zero Waste teams up with the Environmental Justice Movement: when you put your trash out on the curb, you probably don’t expect its being burned in a largely poor, minority community contributing to the toxic air they breathe, but if you live in DelCo that is exactly what’s happening. Solid waste disposal is a complex topic, and we will discuss how aspiring towards Zero Waste is both an environmental and moral imperative.

Noel Smyth is a Climate Policy advocate, and civil engineer at heart, with over 10 years’ experience, leads transformation programs to shape carbon pricing policy and shift mindsets to preserve ecology and sustain a liveable planet for future generations. He possesses diverse skills in influencing federal, state and local legislative leaders, organizing community groups to advocate around water, climate change, and sustainable transport, and innovating new approaches to renewable energy.

In honor of Earth Day, Main Line PA IPL, in conjunction with the statewide PA IPL, are excited to offer a one-woman theatrical performance exploring the life of Rachel Carson (1907-1964)—a new Heritage Theatre Guild’s Famous American Women program created and presented by Pat Jordan.

About Rachel Carson: Born and raised outside of Pittsburgh, Rachel Carson is a Pennsylvania environmental heroine: a world-renowned marine biologist, conservationist, and influential author of Silent Spring (1962) and other works. She is known today as the Mother of Modern Environmentalism.

About Pat Jordan: Professional actor, playwright, and director, Pat Jordan’s passion for history has led her to bring the stories of Famous American Women to audiences throughout the country. Betsy Ross, Clara Barton, Louisa May Alcott, and suffragist leader Carrie Chapman are among the characters she has researched and brought to life, performing at numerous venues including the National Archives in Washington, DC, the Truman Library, and the Smithsonian Institution. Pat is an active member of the Main Line Unitarian Church in Devon, PA.
