Meeting: February 2022

Going green

Was your new year’s resolution to be a bit greener?*
Well here’s a chance to see how well we’ve done so far and how we can all do a little bit better!
*if not, why not?

Our networking meeting on Thursday 10th February 2022 at East Finchley Constitutional Club is all about sustainability and how we can actually put it into practice.

Speakers:
Emma Frampton of Bin There Done That
Emma attended N2United’s very last meeting in 2020 before lockdown, full of ideas to co-ordinate recycling and terracycle points and increase upcycling in the neighbourhood. Now the project is up and running, she’ll be here to give us an update.
Maxine Klein of No2PlasticsN2
East Finchley’s own sustainability campaigning group, which also came into being as the result of an N2United networking meeting, tells us how we can help get rid of single-use plastics.
Peter Barnett of A. Scott and Son Fishmongers
Peter was one of our founding members and has been a quiet green champion, with an impressive range of sustainable upgrades in his East Finchley fishmonger’s, ranging from the packaging of his fish to the lighting in his shop. Peter will share his first hand experience of the cost and realities of making it work.

All attendees will be invited to introduce themselves at the start of the meeting.
We look forward to seeing you!
