About the sharing

If you already bring your own utensils and have increased your consumption of locally-produced foods, you might be thinking, "How else could I contribute to a greener city through my eating choices?". In this session, the speaker will break down the hows and whys of sustainable eating to help you understand what it really means to eat green.
