UPCOMING CONVERSATIONS

February 7, 2023: What you can do to Reduce Consumption

“Reduce” to promote conservation is a great catchphrase. The reality, though, is often different. Buying fewer clothes, groceries, gasoline, devices and more seems difficult. (We often want more clothes to deal with cold rainy Seattle mornings, for example, and bicycling in the rain, or eating less can seem hard.) We’ll discuss what “reduce” really means, provide insights on how much unexpected excess there is in many people’s lives and look at how we can actually reduce what we use without feeling deprived.
