Description

**THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED; PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR NEW DATE/TIME INFO!**
We're very excited to announce the third installment in our new monthly Sustainability Series! We'll be examining local insights and initiatives with our usual opportunities for small-group discussion and practical takeaways as we learn about different angles on sustainability.

Susan says: yes, grocery shopping can be an environmentally friendly activity! With a little bit of creativity and planning, sustainable shopping can be easy and fun, and it can feel as good for you and your wallet as it does for the planet.

Come out to learn tips and techniques to reduce waste while you’re shopping and after you bring your groceries home.

Susan Gentilcore, an environmental educator and the owner of All Things Preserved, will be here to discuss low-waste ideas for food shopping and food storage. The goal of this conversation is to increase mindfulness and sustainability around food.

The hands-on portion of the event will bring us all together to create reusable shopping bags out of previously-loved t-shirts. T-shirts will be provided but if you have a favourite of your own, please feel free to bring it with you.

We will provide coffee, tea, and refreshments for this event.
Vegan & gluten-free options always available.

Tickets are $25 for the speaker, discussion, and reusable shopping bag workshop.
*No one turned away due to lack of funds or credit card; please contact maritcollective@gmail.com to pay cash at the door, or pay-what-you-can and sponsored ticket options.*

ABOUT OUR SPEAKER:
Are you doing your best to be kind to the earth? Are you on a journey to zero waste living? Susan Gentilcore is, and wants you to as well! She showcases handmade items that are refashioned, reclaimed, repurposed and/or reinvented, and they all support a zero waste lifestyle. Susan also leads workshops on traditional and homesteading activities. Find out more at http://www.allthingspreserved.ca/

ABOUT US:
Marit Collective is a social organization that encourages a culture of depth and thoughtfulness through exploring personal insight and human connection. We create space for respectful discussion and consciousness-raising within our own groups and community, working at the personal level to foster more empathy and awareness of each other. We believe that individual shifts in understanding can lead to larger societal evolution in an increasingly polarized world.

Our new home, the Causerie, is a place to listen, learn, and connect across perspectives. With this space, we are working to build a community centered around thoughtful discussion & deeper consideration of complex issues through sharing ideas and personal points-of-view.

Marit Collective focuses on creating spaces for thoughtful discussion that allows us to listen, learn, and connect across perspectives. We expect all attendees to engage respectfully with the topics and with each other but our events cannot be considered “safe spaces”. We are committed to inclusion, understanding, and making sure everyone present has a chance to contribute their thoughts (if desired).

INFO ON LOCATION/ACCESSIBILITY/GETTING HERE:

The Causerie is situated in an historical building in downtown Kitchener and as such it has some limitations. There are two steps into the front entrance and five steps inside up into the large event room. There are two gender-unspecified bathrooms and there are no steps to get to them inside the space. The bathrooms have no accessibility devices installed.

This is a scent-free event. Please refrain from using scented colognes, perfumes, hair products or soaps.

For general comfort & cleanliness at the Causerie, we ask visitors to take off their outdoor shoes & bring slippers or clean shoes to wear inside. There is a basket of slippers by the front door that visitors can borrow from as well!
