Chicago-area friends! I'm excited to share the details of our next zero waste meet-up - let's get together to celebrate spring at The Plant. The Plant is a food production space / urban farm in Chicago's Back of the Yards that's designed to be a net-zero, closed loop system and incubate innovative ideas relating to building a more circular economy.
We'll be taking a tour of the The Plant, visiting their farmers' market for a chance to stock up on local produce, and hanging out together in the Tap Room. We'll meet at 11 in the Tap Room; the tour starts at 11:30, and please bring $10 for it if you'd like to participate. After, we'll stick around to chat and shop their weekend farmers' market. And, everyone who comes will receive a free bamboo toothbrush generously donated by Brush with Bamboo.
I started hosting these meet-ups about a year ago to give Chicago folks interested in zero waste and sustainability a chance to chat about their interests and make new friends, and they group has blossomed into a supportive, inclusive community. You don't have to be perfectly zero waste to come (none of us are!), or even zero waste at all - to be welcome, all you have to do is show up. We hope you'll join us!
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions! And, if you'd like to be on the email list for future meet-ups, you can sign up here.
