On their lunch break today, some of our allied health team headed to sewing school. They‘re the first to take advantage of our sustainability committee’s workshops on how to make your very own sustainable cutlery holders.

Our sewing teachers, the multi-skilled Janet Punch and Erin Weston (both work in mental health, and Erin’s also on our sustainability committee) and sustainability committee project officer Elvira Hewson are running these hour-long classes this afternoon to encourage us to keep our own set of cutlery and crockery in our own offices.

Not only does this clever initiative address current Department of Health & Human Services COVID-related restrictions on shared cutlery and crockery, we get to learn new skills, have some fun, and engage in an activity that’s all about caring for our environment.

Staff and registered volunteers are attending this crafternoon in their lunch breaks or before/after their shifts.
