8:30 - 9:00: Break out rooms, General Networking and Cory Schlesinger
Cory Schlesinger, of Jungle Care RVA, has a background in medicine, but was able to retire and now is a full time investor. She had heard of professional organizing and decided to join NAPO. She has always lived an eco-friendly lifestyle from a young age, engaged responsible disposal, and avoided over-consumption of useless products.
The presentation will begin with a brief discussion of source reduction, as resource conservation is one of the most important steps that can be taken as an individual. There will also be a short discussion about avoiding food waste, as rotting food produces a large amount of the greenhouse gas methane.
This will be followed by discussion of ethical consumption, minimalism, and responsible disposal. Developing green practices will focus on avoiding consumerism and over-consumption. There will be some examples of niche recycling; upcycling; and repurposing of plastic. Another topic is how to segue into a green discussion with new clients to determine their level of interest.
