Co-Working Opportunities in September

During the month of September, our Sustainability Programs Coordinator for Actively Green will be hosting a co-working opportunity for businesses to utilize as a working session; to share best practices with fellow sustainable businesses (including each of our hosts); to brainstorm projects and solutions; to troubleshoot challenges; to learn from guest speakers, such as Katie Becht with THG Energy Solutions; or to spend time picking Kate’s brain about anything from mattress recycling options to parent company sustainability policies & goals.
