Sustainability author Janelle Orsi will speak at Asheville Green Drinks, Feb. 8

Please join us for a presentation by sharing lawyer Janelle Orsi, director of the Sustainable EconomiesLawCenter, and co-author of The Sharing Solution: How to Save Money, Simplify Your Life & Build Community (Nolo Press) and the forthcoming book Sharing Law: Understanding the Legal Landscape of the New Economy (ABA Books). With the help of entertaining cartoon slides, Janelle will discuss practical ideas and tools, ways of overcoming cultural, emotional, and practical barriers to sharing, and exciting new developments in the realm of sharing.

Sharing and community building are key ingredients in the transition to a more sustainable world. Car sharing, shared housing, barter networks, gift circles, shared food gardens, meal sharing, community energy projects, cooperatives, community-supported enterprises — these are just some examples of ways that sharing is becoming an essential part of our economy and livelihoods.
