Planet New Canaan welcomes the public to attend Cultivating a Sustainable Lifestyle with Sustainne founder and CEO Analiese Paik.

The cost of doing nothing is prohibitive so we cannot continue with business as usual. Our personal choices have a big impact on the earth and those who emulate our behavior.
