Join us for a free lunch at this zero waste event with special guest Nick Cooney. Hear about Green Unity and what you can do to get involved in sustainability and community outreach at VCU and the surrounding communities. All students, faculty, staff, and Richmond community members are welcome to attend!

Nick Cooney is a 29 year old founder of two non-profits and the author of Change Of Heart: What Psychology Can Teach Us About Spreading Social Change. His advocacy work has been profiled in the Wall Street Journal and Time Magazine. Each year he speaks to hundreds of college activists, which has included Harvard and Princeton, about how they can be more effective at creating the change they want to see on their campus and in the world.

More information on his book can be found here:

Free information about VCU sustainability and how to get city curb-side recycling pick-up will be on hand. We will also be selling Green Unity water bottles ($10, 22oz, aluminum, BPA-free), Green Unity t-shirts ($10, 69% recycled Cotton), and reusable ChicoBags ($10, 100% recycled PET) to fundraise for Green Unity in order to continue our community and educational outreach events like Green Lunch, neighborhood clean-ups, and community garden projects.
