Living the Greener Life: Lessons From Environmental Publishers

12:00 PM - 12:45 PM

We all know that we should be doing more to live a greener and more environmentally-supportive lifestyle, but most of us aren’t sure how. We’ve made some big climate promises as a country, and now we’re all going to need to take active steps to lighten our carbon footprint and embrace more sustainable products and solutions.

Join Tim Grant (Green Teacher),  David McConnachie (Alternatives Journal), and Sam Stedman (Eco Parent) to learn how to live a greener life. Topics to be covered run the cradle to the grave: everything from greening your baby’s nursery through to how to have a truly natural burial….and everything in-between.

Tim Grant

Tim is a former high school teacher and the co-editor of Green Teacher magazine, a non-profit quarterly offering practical ideas for fostering environmental literacy and global awareness in Grades K-12.

David McConnachie

David is a long-time publishing professional, having served as the NHL’s Director of Publishing from 1996 to 2000. He joined Alternatives Journal as Business Manager in 2011 and has worked to support the on-going media evolution of this 45 year-old environmental media nonprofit.

Sam Stedman

Sam is a former university professor, with a PhD in ethics and theatre from the University of Toronto, and a mission to make his family more eco-friendly, step by step, piece by piece.
