Environmental Education

The San Clemente Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with CR&R and the City of San Clemente, has launched a multi-faceted environmental education program to provide local businesses and the public with resources on how to comply with California's newest environmental organic recycling requirements (SB1383), via the following steps:

  1. The program kicked-off in 2023 with a visit to CR&R's "digester" where select restaurant owners/operators and community leaders received a visual of how organics are converted into clean transportation fuel.
  2. Next, a special presentation outlined how the community can support and implement food waste recycling regulations.
  3. Then, a Green Team task force was formed. The team produced fun and useful educational videos:
  4. Finally, 200 businesses in San Clemente will receive custom starter packs for their kitchens; a Sustainable Leader window cling will be included for those who have committed to organic recycling best practices.
