Sustainable Breakfast Series

Our Sustainable Breakfast Series (SBS) features guest presenters from local, regional and national organizations that incorporate sustainable practices or ideas. This series brings in organizations with ties to various sustainable topics and provides an overview of each organization’s mission, programs, sustainable practices, and principles. The discussion often focuses on how the organizations incorporate sustainable practices and why they feel it is important to do so, as well as the challenges, opportunities, etc., associated with these practices.

The SBS events are interactive and social in nature and therefore Marstel-Day staff learn as much from the speakers as they do of us. Overall, this program is an excellent venue for sharing sustainable ideas, learning new practices, and incorporating new ideas into our current and future work.
