Did you watch Planet Earth from behind the sofa? Did David Attenborough scare you into saying no to straws? Are your kids on at you about plastic? Teenagers eye-rolling at your tupperware?
Where can you begin to start reducing your family’s impact? Confused about carbon, diesels, plastic and climate change? Ditched the takeaway coffee cups and water bottles but not sure what the next steps could be?
Join us for a (not for profit) friendly discussion about sustainable living, strictly under the Cheltenham Maman ethos of NO JUDGEMENT. We’ll talk about ethical businesses and positive life changes you can make for a healthier, happier home. In the beautiful surroundings of the stunning yurt at Stroud based farm shop and café Jolly Nice. Come and enjoy an evening drink and some local foodie treats (the farm shop will be open for browsing/buyinguntil 8.30pm.)
CheltenhamMaman will facilitate discussion between the audience and two learned friends.

Raechel Kelly is a local Gloucestershire Mum who has appeared on BBC Radio Gloucestershire following her 2018 resolution attempt to ditch the single-use plastic. She has worked in sustainability for 10 years, helping investors and fund managers identify the most sustainable companies, picking up a shed-load of useless information along the way, and a few gems for ‘one-planet’ living. Sustainably, she got her children’s school to cover a roof in solar panels, and her work, and any other available surfaces are always at risk of being put to good use. Unsustainably, she has three children and a dog, but is determined that hopeful, positive action at a local level can actually save the world.
7.30- 9pm. Tuesday 26th June, Jolly Nice Farm Shop and Café, Frampton Mansell (Near Stroud.)
Tickets just £12.50 plus a 50p processing fee. (Bring a reusable cup for your coffee and you’ll receive a special treat!)
