category cork | environment | event notice author Saturday September 16, 2017 00:10author by CHASE - Cork Harbour Alliance for a Safe Environment. Report this post to the editors

Bea Johnson has just announced details of her 9th speaking tour in which she will visit 10 European countries including a visit to Cork where she will share her inspirational story of change at a talk in Rochestown Park Hotel on 27 September at 8.00pm. The event is open to all, tickets are 15 Euro and any profits generated from ticket sales will be donated to CHASE to go towards Oral Hearing bills. See below for details on how to get tickets


ABOUT BEA JOHNSON
Dubbed ‘The priestess of zero waste’, French Californian Bea Johnson and her family of four have overhauled their consumption and shopping and now produce almost no waste. Bea collects their waste output in a single quart jar every year and has become a powerful advocate for waste free living of which she says “We not only feel happier, but we also lead more meaningful lives based on experiences instead of stuff.”

Bea’s blog Zero Waste Home has 20million page views and she has delivered presentations to organisations such as Google, TedX, the European Parliament and is regularly featured by media including BBC, NBC, The New York Times, People Magazine, CNN. This is Bea’s second speaking engagement in Ireland in two years. Her Trinity College presentation has hugely accelerated the range of package free options available to people, according to the organisers of that March 2016 talk.

The Cork event is being hosted by CHASE and Cobh Zero Waste and will feature a Zero Waste popup market which will be open to ticket holder and non-ticket holders, so come along with some jars even if you can’t make the talk!

ZERO WASTE POPUP MARKET
