About the event
Please join the University Park Woman’s Club as we welcome our guest speaker, author Stephanie Miller, on Monday, March 6th. Stephanie will describe what actions we could take today that would help solve the climate and waste crises. In this talk, we'll go through easy steps towards having a positive environmental impact. These actions fall into three areas she calls the “magic three”: focus on food, purge plastics and recycle right. You will leave the conversation feeling empowered to take action today and help others around you do the same.

Book description: Many of us feel powerless to solve the looming climate and waste crises. We have too much on our plates, and may think these problems are better solved by governments and businesses. This book unlocks the potential in each “too busy” individual to be a crucial part of the solution. Stephanie Miller combines her career focused on climate change with her own research and personal experience to show how a few, relatively easy lifestyle changes can create significant positive impact. Using the simplicity of the 80/20 rule, she shows us those things (the 20%) that we can do to make the biggest (80%) difference in reversing the climate and waste crises. Books will be available for sale at $12 each.
