What is your plastic footprint?  Take a walk through your house and notice how much plastic has infused our way of life.  From plastic-packaged food in the kitchen to toothbrushes and shampoo in the bathroom, from the carpet on the floor to the clothes in our closets, and all the gadgets we use each day, our world is full of plastic.

Although some plastics make our lives better, much of it is a problem — polluting our oceans and beaches and harming our health with toxic chemicals. But what can one person do to be part of the solution? Join us for an afternoon of inspiring stories and practical tips about ways to reduce plastic in your home and on the planet.  Author Beth Terry will share her journey from self-confessed plastic addict to empowered plastic-free activist and explain why we can’t just recycle our way out of this mess. 

Plastic use often goes hand in hand with medical care and disability. We use plastic for oxygen and other tubing, to protect items from contamination, for gloves, injections, and in drug or supplement packaging. Beth’s guilt-free approach looks for alternatives when possible. As people with chemical sensitivity, we are often caught in the middle because plastic both protects and harms us. Come add your voice to the discussion.

EHN Meetings are free and open to both members and nonmembers but you must arrive scent-free. This means no synthetic or natural fragrances of any kind in personal care or laundry products or residues of other chemicals (such as cigarette smoke, pesticides, or building materials like fresh paint). We are quite strict about this so all of our members can attend. It’s also a rule of our meeting host, Ecology House. Please contact us if you have any questions. We want you to attend too and will gladly walk you through the process. If you wish, please bring (labeled) food to share.

Saturday January 31, 2015
4-6pm with potluck dinner to follow
