The Santa Monica Public Library is scheduled to host the Green Living Workshop, a six-week series from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesdays starting January 16th, at the Main Library, 601 Santa Monica Blvd.

The workshop is offered by Sustainable Works. The series provides the latest “eco-info” and offers advice on saving up to $200 a year on utility costs and cutting landfill waste by up to 50 percent.

The workshop is scheduled to meet Wednesdays through February 20th, and each session focuses on a different topic — water, energy, waste, chemicals, transportation and travel, and shopping and food.

Participants receive free resource saving tools such as water-saving shower heads, energy-saving light bulbs, and reusable shopping bags. Additional workshop series will follow in the spring and summer starting March 5th, April 23rd, and June 11th.

The program is free and open to the public. Participants are encouraged to sign-up now, as class space is limited.
