Zero Waste Challenge Conversation
In collaboration with Barnard College students, It’s Easy Being Green will host a conversation on The Zero Waste Challenge in NYC’s Food Industry. Panelists include, Christina Mitchell Grace, the CEO and founder of Foodprint Group, which manages projects that address public health and mitigate climate change through better food practices. She will be joined by Sandra Noonan, Chief Sustainability Officer of Just Salad, a restaurant chain that has recently pledged to publish the carbon foodprint of its ingredients.
In collaboration with Columbia University graduate students in the Climate and Society Program, It’s Easy Being Green will hold its second Climate Cafe at Pisticci Restaurant, (Lasalle St.). At this follow up to a successful cafe held in February 2020, students will present compelling climate science and community members ask questions and give feedback on the content and presentation. It’s a win-win for all as community members learn climate science and students have the opportunity to practice their presentation skill.
