When our founder Valerie Leloup started reading Bea Johnson’s book Zero Waste Home during the 2015 Christmas Break, she certainly didn’t imagine that it would lead to her opening Ottawa’s first zero waste grocery store! Funny what a simple book can trigger.

Knowing that Bea wasn’t just a writer and blogger, but also a talented speaker, it was only natural that we sought to invite her to Ottawa to talk about zero waste. She said YES, and we are excited to host her inspiring Talk and Q&A in partnership with our downtown City Councillors, envirocentre and écolead.

On April 18, join us at the First Baptist Church in Centretown (corner of Elgin and Laurier) and hear her fascinating journey towards waste-free and minimalistic living, and the many benefits that come with it. Tickets are only $7!
