Event description

Description

Hosted at World Centric headquarters in Petaluma, this B Local Bay Area Meetup is open to employees of the Certified B Corporation community and those who are interested in learning more about how to use business as a force for good.

This event is designed to discuss the issue of packaging waste in business – both petroleum and plant-based. We will address current challenges for achieving zero waste packaging, solutions that exist (or should exist), and how we can all make an impact on the path toward reducing waste. Please join us if you have information to share on this subject, are looking for ways to reduce packaging waste within your own business, or if you’re simply an advocate for a more sustainable world.
