Earthsave Sponsors Dairy-Free Living Event

As residents of Vancouver become increasingly more health conscious and collectively inch closer to adopting new green initiatives and firm environmental standpoints, the demand for public education grows, too.

One such area of interest, is dairy-free living.

Earthsave Canada has decided to step-up and meet public demand, offering a half day course that includes dairy-free living workshops and local product knowledge.

Dairy-Free Living is an upcoming event scheduled for April 3rd at 2pm, to be hosted by the Vancouver Public Library (central branch). Two guest speakers have been secured for the event, which include the following:
