November Sustainable Event Guide!

Updated: Nov 27, 2019

I have to be honest - I'm tired. Like all the time. I know this is not a unique to me thing - I think being tired is the most shared personality trait amongst my peer group, but nevertheless, I'm tired! Each week, carving out the time to go through all my notes and saved browser bookmarks, etc to cultivate the event guide is a lot of time. SO, after almost a year of weekly event guides, I'm now going to switch to a monthly event guide! Here's why this is great:


1 ) You can plan for extra special awesome sustainable events more than a week in advance!

2) The event guide will never be late, since I only need to do a deep dive once a month

3) I'll never lose a note or forget to post something because I got word of the event too far in advance, meaning you'll never miss out either!


I'll still be updating this regularly as I hear about more events when they pop up, but in the meantime, I present to you: THE NOVEMBER SUSTAINABLE EVENTS IN NYC GUIDE!
