Join us on Monday, January 25, from 6-7:30 pm (EST) for Enspire's Speaker Series focusing on Sustainable Packaging, featuring Rachel Morier.
The live session will be dedicated to thinking and learning about sustainable packaging practices and discussing key topics via fireside chat such as: how to tackle packaging methods during the pandemic, how to balance old and new innovations, and future of packaging (cost reductions, bioplastics, climate change).
Enspire by Enactus Ryerson believes education is the first step to creating change. We want to teach students about relevant social, economic, and environmental issues in order to create fundamental impact on both a local and global scale. Our vision is to create a world where sustainability is no longer an option but the standard.
Our mission is to provide a collaborative environment where aspiring social entrepreneurs can receive education on local, niche problems, and create their own startups to implement sustainable solutions.
