Sliding Scale Ticketing

Green Bottle is a sliding scale model that is inclusive of various financial experiences. It was developed by intersectional herbalist Alexis J. Cunningfolk and is an economic justice tool that enables participants to adjust payment based on access to resources.

In order to help people participate regardless of their ability to pay, we are offering this event on a sliding scale. This sliding scale is offered in the hopes of creating greater accessibility, equity, and economic justice.

Please review the Green Bottle model and reflect on your personal financial experience in order to self-determine your ticket price.

  • The 1st bottle corresponds to a price between $100-$125, the "true cost" of a webinar. If you would like to include a financial donation to help students or others access these webinars, please consider choosing a ticket price at the $125 or higher level.
  • The 2nd bottle corresponds to a price between $50- $75
  • The 3rd bottle corresponds to a price between $25 and a full subsidy.

Please be mindful that if you purchase a price at the lowest end of the scale when you can truthfully afford the higher ticket prices, you may be limiting access to those who truly need financial flexibility
