Event details

As a parent, getting out of the house with everyone wearing shoes (on a good day) can feel like you're winning, so adding 'being green' to the never-ending to-do list might feel like the thing to bring all your spinning plates crashing to the ground. If that's the case, then this may be the talk for you.

No preaching. No judgement. No guilt. Jen Gale, author of The Sustainable(ish) Guide to Green Parenting: Guilt-Free Eco-Ideas for Raising Your Kids, promises easy, do-able ideas and suggestions for you to pick and choose from, try out and adapt. Why not explore what works for you and your family?


This event is hosted live on Zoom Webinar and you’ll receive a link to join a couple of days before it takes place. During the event, you can ask questions via a Q&A function but audience cameras and microphones will remain muted throughout.


Book sales

You can buy copies of many of our speakers’ books from Fox Lane Books, a local independent bookseller and Festival partner.  In some cases, author signed bookplates are available too.   

About the speaker

Jen Gale is a mum and ex-vet who once dragged the family along with a year buying nothing new, blogged about it and found her voice and her 'thing'. The author of The Sustainable(ish) Living Guide and The Sustainable(ish) Guide to Green Parenting, she now blogs, writes, podcasts, speaks and lives about all things sustainable(ish). She believes we are not all helpless and that our actions are not insignificant - it all starts with that first step and continues one step at a time. Find her on:
