Zero Waste Living Spotlight

October 6, 2020 | Online Panel & Networking

What have you heard about zero waste living? Is it actually achievable or does it make daily sustainable living practices seem easy or inaccessible, especially in the age of COVID-19?

If you’re new to living sustainably and social impact or are already a reduced waste advocate, this event will share simple and clear best practices for how to lead a lifestyle that has a positive impact on the environment.

Our expert panelists will discuss everything from how the increased need for PPE is changing the ways people can lead zero-waste lifestyles, to innovative ideas for how your actions can actually be regenerative for the planet, as well as best practices from people who are living sustainably every day from home. We’ll go beyond recycling and home gardens to discuss even more nuanced aspects of the zero waste movement.

Join this online event to gain insights into how you can live more sustainably, practice reducing waste (even with your masks, gloves, and face shields), and explore activities that are beneficial for the environment from the comfort of your home. If you wanted to up your game when it comes to sustainable practices, this event will provide you with the inspiration and insights you need to jumpstart your eco-living.

All Be Social Change panels include a short networking opportunity at the beginning of the event in order to strengthen the inspiration, connections, and collaborations among people who are leading change.
