Shrink Your Footprint: What you buy, Sustainable Princeton

Wednesday February 5, 2020

The goods we buy and the services we use matter. Our consumer behavior drives climate change. However, buying less does not necessarily imply a lower quality of life. Learn about the latest advances in sustainable consumption and how you can reduce your carbon footprint.

Sustainable Princeton, in partnership with the Princeton Public Library, is hosting this third of four programs in its Great Ideas series focused on practical, actionable and evidence-based steps to reduce the footprint of our daily lives. The event is free, open to the public and sponsored by NRG Energy, Inc.

Light refreshments will be served. All events are low-waste. Consider arriving in a sustainable way -- walking, biking or carpooling.
