Zero Waste (Green) Home: Bea Johnson is Coming to Bend!

September 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$2 – $10

Sustainability isn’t just about how green your home, office, or school is – it’s about how you live and make decisions within those spaces and beyond. Which is why we’re kicking off the 2019 Green Tour with zero waste extraordinaire, Bea Johnson! Join us for a memorable evening that 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. (That’s one jar, folks.) Bea has been featured on TV shows and in publications all over the world. She has empowered hundreds of thousands of people to adopt waste-free living, open unpackaged shops, and conceive reusable products. As the leading spokesperson for zero waste living, she has completed 19 international speaking tours and has worked with companies like Google, Amazon, Starbucks, and IKEA, to name a few.

Bea 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. Why incentivize smaller-footprint homes in our growing community? (Less space = less stuff and less energy). Is it possible to retrofit a 1920’s home and not produce an excess amount of trash?

Reserve your tickets today!

Learn more about Bea Johnson here. You can also check out her book at the Deschutes Public Library, or purchase from Dudley’s Bookshop Cafe
