Living the Greener Life: Lessons From Environmental Publishers

12:00 PM - 12:45 PM

We all know that we should be doing more to live a greener and more environmentally-supportive lifestyle, but most of us aren’t sure how. We’ve made some big climate promises as a country, and now we’re all going to need to take active steps to lighten our carbon footprint and embrace more sustainable products and solutions.

Join Tim Grant (Green Teacher), Glenn Laycock (Warren’s Waterless Printing), David McConnachie (Alternatives Journal), and Sam Stedman (Eco Parent) to learn how to live a greener life. Topics to be covered run the cradle to the grave: everything from greening your baby’s nursery through to how to have a truly natural burial….and everything in-between.
