Brown Bag Learning Series: Rethinking Consumerism: Strategies for Living with Less

Join us for a fun and informative talk about ways to simplify our life and choose sustainably for our health and our environment and create very little waste while doing it. Claudia and Brigitte will show you ways to shop wisely, ethically and locally. Remember that every day you have choices, every day you vote with your wallet. When you buy a product, you are supporting the companies that manufacture that product and also their policies. Come learn the changes we have made in our own households and how they have shaped our lives to get inspiration.
