Zero Waste (Green) Home: Bea Johnson is coming to Bend!
The Environmental Center invites you to join them for a memorable evening with zero-waste extraordinaire Bea Johnson who will inspire you to reflect on your own lifestyle and habits, and provide practical solutions for living simply and reducing waste.
Since 2008, Bea and her family have produced a mere PINT of trash per year. She has empowered hundreds of thousands of people to adopt waste-free living, open unpackaged shops, and conceive reusable products. She initiated a global movement. And here in Central Oregon, she’ll lend a unique perspective on how this fits into our own local sustainability efforts. How can we incentivize smaller-footprint homes in our growing community? (Less space = less stuff and less energy) Is it possible to retrofit and remodel a 1920’s home and not produce an excess amount of trash?
Now more than ever, it’s important for each of us to make a change under our own roofs, no matter how big or small. It’s time to waste less and live more, and we hope Bea’s presentation – and the Green Tour on Saturday, September 28 – will be the motivation you need to step it up a notch.
