Living A Sustainable Lifestyle Tea & Talks are monthly online gatherings of people who want to share their experiences as they discover how to live without plastic, reduce their waste, compost, grow their own food, and reduce energy consumption.
The first gatherings were convened at the former Cornish General Store and participants met to share favorite passages from books about the environment and discuss how to live more sustainably. We had tea, served healthy snacks, and talked every Sunday afternoon for five Sundays. We shifted to ZOOM in 2020, and began meeting monthly. We rotate facilitators and note takers each year, and discuss a variety of topics, many of which are based on the book Drawdown, by Paul Hawken.
The Living A Sustainable Lifestyle Tea & Talk website has tips on living a sustainable lifestyle generated from four years of talks, resources on recycling and waste free living, and a compiled discussion about heat pumps from members.
