The S.T.A.R Reuse Council’s annual Reuse Tour is in El Paso this year! Texas is a big state, so don’t fret if it’s a little further than you care to drive, because we’re hosting our tour virtually this year! The tour will be spread across three Fridays in June, during lunch (12-1 pm CDT), on the 4th, 11th, and 25th. We’ll feature a different reuse organization each week, and have built in time for small group networking rooms. Admission is free.

Tour Stops:
