Nashville, TN, May 19, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- According to Global News, “The fashion industry is the world’s second-largest polluter, after oil. That means even if you’re diligent about correctly separating your recycling, put solar panels on your roof and collect rainwater, and strictly buy local, organic produce, you’re inherently implicit in fashion’s shameful truth just by getting dressed every morning.” To combat pollution and enlighten people on the best sustainable living practices, the Nashville Church of Scientology, in partnership with the Way to Happiness Association of Tennessee, is hosting a Sustainable Living Conference on June 5th, World Environment Day.
The conference, which begins at 7:00 pm, will have a keynote on sustainable fashion by Elisabeth Donaldson of 365 Days of Thrift Followed by an Eco Conscious Panel discussion with Wall Street Journal featured low waste lifestyle expert and blogger Erin Hendrickson, Homesteading Hero Janelle Hillman, and Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee Representative Charlotte Weatherington. Following the panel will be a fashion show featuring all thrifted clothing.
The Way to Happiness Association was formed around the book The Way To Happiness, written by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. The book is filled with twenty-one precepts based on the fact that one’s survival depends on the survival of others. One of these precepts is “Safeguard and Improve the Environment,” which takes to heart care for the planet.
World Environment Day occurs each year on June 5th and is celebrated by the United Nations. According to unep.org, World Environment Day “…has grown to be a broad, global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated by stakeholders in over 100 countries. It also serves as the ‘people’s day’ for doing something positive for the environment, galvanizing individual actions into a collective power that generates an exponential positive impact on the planet.”
