TD in the Pub: Ethical Shopping

How to buy ethical and make it fun: Choose your own shopping adventure!

Buying the right thing seems to be getting more complicated every day.

This session will empower you to find your way through the complexity of choosing what to buy. By learning about key green purchasing principles you will be able to work out your own ethical framework. Once you have a framework you won’t have to juggle as many issues each time you buy something.

The presenter will also discuss how to see through false marketing claims and explore which claims and certifications are credible.

We will talk about joyful purchasing and ways to joyfully buy less.

The evening will include a presentation, small group discussions and plenty of opportunity to debate the difficult questions.
