Have you ever stopped to think about how much waste you produce? In this engaging talk, Hayley Higdon explores the impacts of waste and explains the benefits that living a zero waste lifestyle can have on the individual and society.

Haley is an environmentalist who works at the Jackman Institute of Child Studies, an elementary school affiliated with U of T that is devoted to studying childhood development. She is the Project Lead for Natural Curiosity, the environmental Inquiry Program at the school. Just having won U of T’s Green Ribbon award, recognizing outstanding achievements in campus sustainability, Haley shares her zero-waste lifestyle and tips for making small changes into sustainable habits on her social media blogs, under the title 50 Shades of Green.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
