Which is Greener? Green Decision-Making for Consumers

With Dr. Philip Jessop, Canada Research Chair of Green Chemistry, Queen’s University

Join us for an informative night as Dr. Jessop will get to the truth of the matter in living a greener life. How can we, as consumers, know what options are really the best for the environment? Electric cars, hybrid cars, or gasoline-powered cars? Butter versus margarine? Plastic vs paper straws? Burial or cremation? While scientists have figured out the answers in astonishing detail, their results are buried in complex, inaccessible scientific reports. You will find out how the answers are determined, and what are the greenest choices for consumers.

There is a $3 admission fee to attend this presentation. No pre-registration is required.
