GGD#15 – April 26th – Chat and Show-and-Tell

When: Tuesday, April 26, 2011
Time: 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Where: Aqua Books, 274 Garry Street
RSVP: Facebook
* If you’re not on Facebook, please RSVP on the Contact Us page *

Last month’s conversation format was a lot of fun, so we’re going to do it again this Tuesday at Aqua Books. This time around, bring any gadgets, hobby projects, or work that you think might be interesting to show off and talk about. Everyone is invited, the event is free, but you pay for your own food and drinks.

One of the hot conversation topics last month was what we can do as individuals to effect positive change in our environment. One easy solution is to reduce waste, and we discussed two products: PeopleTowels and the DivaCup.

PeopleTowels are reusable personal hand towels, to be used as an alternative to paper towels in public restrooms. The towel materials and dyes are eco-friendly, and they have some cute designs available.

The DivaCup is a reusable silicon menstrual cup, to be used as an alternative to pads and tampons. I was intrigued enough by this to get one (you can get them at any VitaHealth store), and while it did significantly reduce my plastic and paper waste, it will take some getting used to, but I do like it so far.
