Reducing Plastic Use: A Community Brainstorm @ Glen Rock Community Space
Aug 22 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Reducing Plastic Use: A Community Brainstorm @ Glen Rock Community Space
Join us for a community brainstorm about ways to avoid plastic and re-think the materials we use on a daily basis. If you have ideas and strategies that have worked for you, please bring them to share! Otherwise, come to listen, learn, and find inspiration for realistic changes you can make. Our health coach, Ariana Figueroa, will be moderating the discussion.
 
Integrative Family Medicine recognizes that human health is interdependent with that of our community and environment at large. Humans currently generate around 240 million tonnes of discarded plastic each year, and there are now 500 times more pieces of microplastic in our oceans than stars in our galaxy. Certain plastics can be toxic to humans as well as marine microfauna, and marine litter is threatening some 600 species through entanglement and ingestion. We will harness and use the health coaching model of taking a desire for change and focusing on what is within our control to do. Through conscious choice and planning, we can minimize our personal footprint and model these changes for others.

If you are interested in attending the class, please RSVP before  August  22 at 12:00pm following this link: https://integrativefamily-med-asheville.as.me/?appointmentType=10769236. The class is free for Integrative Life Members. There is a suggested donation of $5 for non-members. Donations will go to our monthly non-profit beneficiary.

Please note that the event will be held in the Glen Rock Community Room at 372 Depot Street, Asheville, NC 28801. This is at the top floor of the building where our clinic is located. It’s easiest to enter from Ralph St., directly behind the clinic, around the corner from PennyCup Coffee. Look for the ramp entrance, then take the elevator to the top floor.
