Cooperative Venture Workspace: Lunch and Learn with Instyle Recycle

We live on a remarkable planet.

While this statement rings true, we are learning more and more about the strain humans have put on the environment and its natural resources. The task of trying to solve these environmental problems in a society that seems stacked against us can be daunting, to say the least, but it is far from impossible. That’s why I created Instyle Recycle, a blog to empower YOU to make environmentally conscious choices in your day-to-day life.

At Lunch and Learn with Instyle Recycle you will learn why a sustainable lifestyle is imperative to create a brighter future for us all, as well as ways that you can go green in the workplace. No matter where you are on your sustainability journey, the idea is to facilitate an awareness that will allow you to make more informed decisions as a consumer, adopt suggested behaviors that work best for your lifestyle, and feel good about doing what you can, when you can. Looking forward to making this journey with you!

Cooperative Venture Workspace’s Lunch & Learn is an event series aimed at having entrepreneurs meet and learn from each other in a fun, engaging atmosphere. For more information about the Cooperative Venture Workspace, visit us at 36 Maplewood Ave, Portsmouth, NH or at coveworkspace.com.
