Other topics covered include:
Why reducing waste matters: a 3 min “101” on how traditional landfill waste contributes to climate change

A debrief on new foam-free alternatives: which ones are REALLY the most planet-friendly?
How to connect with local farmers and work with seasonal product + how to effectively present local / seasonal options to clients!
Plus: Any other burning questions you have!
The AM + PM sessions are separately priced at $95 each. Join Molly for either session, or sign up for both! The cost of cabs (to be shared with other participants) and lunch is included in the workshop ticket.
