[GreenYes] Can you attend 12/11 EPA Meeting in SF on Beyond RCRA?
Apologies for Cross-Postings

We're trying to get Zero Waste advocates out for this.  Can you 
attend?  Attached is the agenda for the day that was used in DC 
today.  This will likely be the same agenda used in SF.  In DC, only 2 
environmental leaders attended: Neil Seldman and Pat Franklin.  We need a 
much better showing in SF to impact the direction of this important process.

Please REPLY if you are able to attend, and are interested in supporting 
Zero Waste and product stewardship as key messages that EPA includes in 
this document.

Thanks!

Gary Liss
