With Black Friday and the holiday season just around the corner, we often face a choice of participating in the hyper-consumer culture or simply abstaining. This panel will explore another option, which we can use all year: using your power as a consumer to encourage businesses to adopt more sustainable business practices.
Attendees of the panel will learn both how to find businesses that are already using environmentally sustainable practices so they can support them and how to encourage their local businesses to go green, whether individually or through a group. The panel, moderated by Kurt Walters from CarbonfreeDC, will include an all-star cast of speakers:
Stephanie Sheridan, founder of IPAI Global and Dupont Green Week
Steve Ma, president of Live Green
Megan Barrett, communications manager of Clean Currents
Andy Shallal, owner of Busboys and Poets
The panel is being held at the beautiful library in Shaw, directly across the street from the Shaw/Howard Metro stop. Hope to see you there!
