CLINTON — Sarah Robertson-Barnes, a freelance writer, educator, blogger, consultant and the founder of Sustainable in the Suburbs, is excited to share her knowledge of and passion for living a sustainable life.
The event, titled “Going Zero Waste as a Family” will be presented by Robertson-Barnes, via Zoom, at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 12, at the Bigelow Free Public Library. Those that attend will learn how to manage eco-anxiety and lessen their impact on the planet with easy-to-implement and sustainable living tips for busy families.
“This will be an easy and digestible introduction to how to reduce your household waste as a family, with practical tips on how to get the kids involved,” Robertson-Barnes said.
Believing that individual actions really do matter, Robertson-Barnes states that “by working together we can make a collective difference for a positive impact in our world. Becoming more sustainable as a family is possible, practical, and affordable.”
Marie Letarte, Director of the Bigelow Free Public Library, said the presentation would serve as a great reminder of the importance of practicing sustainable living in your home.
“I think it’s a great way for people to look at their consumer habits and see how they’re doing already, but also, how we all can make small changes that would help when everyone makes an effort to adopt those practices,” Letarte said. “I think many people already know, but sometimes it’s nice to be reminded a – what we’re doing well and b – what else we can do.”
Robertson-Barnes lives with her husband, two kids and rescue dog outside of Toronto, Ontario.
Sustainable in the Suburbs is a resource for living low waste with kids in a culture of convenience.
“A sustainable lifestyle with kids is not only possible, but critically important for our future and theirs,” Robertson-Barnes said. “I hope that by sharing what works for our family, you are inspired to make changes in your daily life too.”
