The conventional wisdom says that you can't be socially and environmentally conscious and be a successful business, but Planet Bean has defied that "wisdom" expanding into three locations across the Royal City and doing it their way by creating a unique kind of cafe that makes its own statement without compromising on the belief that they can be successful and sustainable.
So Planet Bean is an ideally suited location to talk about the City's conservation efforts in a laid back setting that's fun and informative (at least, hopefully, let's not pre-judge these things). It's the second annual team-up between Planet Bean and the City to promote sustainability in Guelph, and anyone interested in environmental issues, or public policy concerning the environment, is welcome to attend.
Guelph, On, June 14, 2013 – The City of Guelph and Planet Bean Café are hosting a Community Conservation Day on Saturday, June 15.
The free event, to celebrate the community, Guelph, and the environment, starts at 11 a.m. at the Planet Bean Café located at 1467 Gordon Street.
Throughout the day there will be door prizes, giveaways, storytelling, children’s activities, and face painting. Displays will include information on Healthy Landscapes visits, the City’s curbside waste cart system, water conservation rebates, Yellow Fish Road program, and environmental conservation.
This is the second year the City has partnered with the environmentally conscious coffee house Planet Bean Café in its efforts to engage residents outside of traditional venues. The City is committed to demonstrating its leadership in conservation and resource protection to ensure long-term sustainability.
