Mike and Marcels fish cookoff

October 11,2008 until October 11, 2008

A Nurtured World is hosting its first annual fundraiser for the Rays of Hope project. Many elderly and low income homeowners within the City of Austin struggle to pay their utility bills, and often, those bills are a disproportionate amount of their income. Typically their homes are inefficient with regard to resources such as energy and water. These homes can contain outdated appliances and HVAC systems and they are not properly sealed and insulated. Toilets, faucets, and related appliances often leak and consume large volumes of water. These problems cost the residents money and reduce their quality of life. Furthermore, the inefficiencies strain energy and water resources and contribute to pollution. As energy and water costs continue to increase, the problem will worsen. October 11, 2008 will be our first annual fundraiser for the Rays of Hope (formerly 1 House at at Time) project. The fundraising event will be held in coordination with Mike and Marcel's 8th Annual Fish Cook-off. The event will include live music, lots of amazing seafood and good ol'fashioned barbecue brisket as well as a silent auction. We are asking for a donation to the project of $15 or more per adult attending the dinner (Kids under 12 are not considered adults and pizza will be provided for them by our Kids Food Sponsor - Southside Flying Pizza!). ALL DONATIONS ARE FULLY TAX DEDUCTIBLE AND RECEIPTS WILL BE PROVIDED FOR TAX PURPOSES. You can register now to attend and donate online at the link below.

Safer Alternatives in Cleanup Solvents for Lithographic Printing

July 17,2008 until July 17, 2008

Safer Alternatives in Cleanup Solvents for Lithographic Printing - Webinar

Presenter: Dr. Katy Wolf, director of the Institute for Research and Technical Assistance (IRTA)
Date: Thursday, July 17th Time: 10 - 11:30 AM (Pacific Time)

There are thousands of lithographic printers in the U.S., most of them small businesses. Emissions of cleanup solvents used to clean rollers and blankets are very high, much higher than emissions of the solvents used in the inks. Most of the cleanup solvents used in the industry are VOCs and many of them are also toxic. This presentation will focus on the results of projects that were conducted in the Los Angeles area over the last few years by the Institute for Research and Technical Assistance (IRTA), a nonprofit organization. In these projects, IRTA worked with 21 lithographic printing facilities to identify, develop, test and demonstrate low-VOC, low toxicity alternative cleanup materials. IRTA found and demonstrated water-based, acetone based and soy based cleaning alternatives that were effective. The South Coast Air Quality Management District adopted a VOC regulation that became effective January 1, 2008 based on the results of the IRTA projects.

Chemical Policy 101 and the Issues Behind Identifying Safer Chemical Alternatives

June 20,2008 until June 20, 2008

Chemical Policy 101 and the Issues Behind Identifying Safer Chemical Alternatives - Webinar

Presenters: Ken Zarker, Washington Department of Ecology
Date: Friday, June 20th
Time: 9:30-11:00 AM (Pacific Time)

Ken Zarker from the WA Department of Ecology will begin the presentation with an overview of national policies regarding chemicals used in everyday products and their risks. He will also discuss international policies such as the EUs REACH program and the importance of educating regional businesses who export to the EU.

In 2007 the State of California launched the California Green Chemistry Initiative; part of this process was creating a public process to fill information and safety gaps about chemicals, developing overall policy goals, and finally, identifying and recommending policy options. Don Owens, Green Chemistry Initiative Coordinators, presentation will focus on the current status of the Initiative and will give us an inside look on what issues they intend to address in the future.

Green Chemistry is a strategy to reduce the use of toxic substances so that they do not harm the public or contaminate the environment. It is a sharp departure from managing industrial wastes by disposal or incineration. Green Chemistry is a way to make goods and engineer processes using less toxic materials, less energy, and less waste. Renewable feedstocks, recycling, sustainability, and other life-cycle attributes are incorporated at the design stage. This cradle-to-cradle approach of Green Chemistry means fewer hazardous substances along with improved air quality, cleaner drinking water, and a safer workplace.

Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) Workshop

June 4,2008 until June 4, 2008

"What Happens after Top-Screen? Living with the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards."

Is your facility in compliance with CFATS? Some 5-8,000 industrial facilities in the US will soon find out if they are going to be regulated under the newly adopted Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS), promulgated by the US Department of Homeland Security in late 2007. Many of these facilities will face new security requirements as a result.

This workshop will provide you with practical knowledge about the new CFATS regulation, and how to integrate your plant's security assistance and planning -- mandated for many facilities under these new regulations -- with your process safety and regulatory compliance efforts. Hosted by The University of Texas at Arlington's Division for Enterprise Development, in cooperation with ChemAlliance, The Texas Chemical Council, and the East Harris County Manufacturers Association, come to this one-day workshop and find out how your facility can prepare to comply with CFATS.

Which energy choice is best for our future? There are a growing number of options, from wind to solar to nuclear and even algae, among many others. Is there a silver bullet in our future, and are the measures we are currently taking going to have enough of an impact? Dr. Michael Webber will address the range of energy choices available to us, the inner workings of each, as well as their impacts on the environment, the economy, and national security.

What energy choice will save our future? From solar power to wind power to the ever-controversial nuclear power, and all the "green" energy choices in between, it's difficult to know which choice is the right one. Is there a silver bullet in our future, and are the measures we are currently taking having enough of an impact? Dr. Michael Webber will address the mounting energy choices available to us, the inner workings of each, as well as their impacts on the environment, the economy, and national security.
