Postponed – Bea Johnson
March 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The event with Bea Johnson has been postponed and will be rescheduled for later this spring or summer. Copies of Zero Waste Home remain available at Magic City Books. Stay tuned for a new date.
Join Author & Activist, Bea Johnson for a visually-rich and upbeat presentation, where Bea shares her tribulations and secrets to achieving Zero Waste.
She covers the importance of applying her 5R’s in order (Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot) and shatters misconceptions, proving that the Zero Waste lifestyle can not only be “stylish”, but also lead to significant health benefits, and time and money savings.
She manages to talk about her personal journey with humor and without preaching. She brings an intimidating topic down to a manageable scale, lending a unique perspective and making Zero Waste less daunting. Her non-judgmental approach will inspire self-reflection and change. Bea talks about her lifestyle with passion and provides many practical solutions to living simply and reducing waste, but more importantly, finding happiness in our consumerist society.
Talk to be followed by a book signing.
Thanks to the following movement makers for making this gathering possible, and free and open to all:
Mother Road Market, Oklahoma Aquarium, Zero Waste Tulsa, MET Recycling, Sustainable Tulsa, Full Sun Composting, Tulsa Young Professionals Sustainability Crew, and the Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation.
