Thinking about driving an electric car? Head over to the Natick Common for a fun and informative day for the entire family.

Learn about all-electric cars and plug-in hybrid vehicles from owners and dealer representatives, while enjoying the locally made or grown food at the Farmers’ Market.

Electric vehicles produce zero tailpipe emissions, helping America reduce its dependence on oil.  Electric vehicle range varies by model, from 80-330 miles on a full charge. EVs are known for their performance and efficiency.   Your energy cost is just a fraction of your current gas bill.  If you have recently installed solar panels on your house, imagine never paying for gas again, and charging from energy generated from your own solar panels!

RDFFind Out More & Talk Trash

Friday, September 26th

6:30 – 8:30 PM

Wellesley is famous for many things, including trash! Come to a family friendly get together for pizza and a short documentary about Wellesley’s own Recycling and Distribution Facility (RDF) on a Friday, September 26th from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Wellesley Hills, 309 Washington St.

The UU Learning Community and UU Green Sanctuary Ministry Team are jointly sponsoring this free event that is open to the public.

Former Wellesley College student Dawn Marie Barnett produced the film, which interviews key players and shows what becomes of Wellesley ‘trash.’

Enjoy pizza at 6:30, followed by the film at 7 PM.

After the film, participants are invited for a little ‘trash’ talk with one of the stars of the film, Gordon Martin, RDF Superintendent, along with hands-on activities and a trash trivia contest.

Join us and find out why sorting is so important.
