November - How the Consumerism Economy Affects Your Solid Waste

Topic: Virtual In-Conversation Event with Journalist and author J.B. MacKinnon
 
Description: What do you buy that you do not truly need? Everywhere you go, corporations are looking for products to market the newest thing that you “need.”

As we consume more and more, it becomes obvious that the planet needs us to consume less. The United States narrative is that the economy needs us to consume more and more. Is there any way out of this dilemma? Journalist and author J.B. MacKinnon explores this question in his new book—and says we have more to gain than to lose in making a shift to a "deconsumer culture." Join this conversation event to learn more.
Date & Time: Nov 18, 2021 06:30 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
