Amanda Richardson isn't just a brewer at Fullsteam. She's also gone out of her way to find little things that her company can do to be more sustainably-minded. Together they add up to have a huge impact on Fullsteam's carbon footprint. She is saying farewell to Fullsteam and to North Carolina on April 16th — just before Earth Day — but before she leaves us, she has brought together some of the ladies that have collaborated with her to help Fullsteam and Durham more eco friendly. They will share their insights and their resources with Pink Boots so that we can carry on Amanda's work of making the NC Beer community a little greener. Panelists include:
Margaret Sands of Triangle Land Conservancy
Crystal Dreisbach of Don't Waste Durham
Tania Dautlick of Keep Durham Beautiful
Daria Drake of The Durham Originals
Tobin Freid from Durham's Sustainability Office
When Fullsteam opens at 4pm, the public is welcome to join the conversation. Each of the panelists, as well as representatives from several other businesses and organizations, will be available to talk one-on-one with interested attendees about how to implement the programs and resources Amanda has put into place at Fullsteam or other projects or goals you are working on. There will be special beers on tap that benefit Pink Boots, organizations working to end food waste, and more! Bring any (clean) unwanted growlers to exchange or donate. We'll also show you how to turn grain bags into shopping bags without a sewing machine!
Help us celebrate Earth Day and say good-bye to Amanda by carrying on her mission to make the Triangle a greener place to live and work.
