At our U.N. Day Luncheon this Saturday, the theme is “Global Goals, Local Leaders.” One local leader we asked to be a panelist is Andrew Sartain, founder of Earth Rebirth.
Earth Rebirth is a local non-profit based educating & empowering people on solutions in food, energy & water. Andrew believes that he most sustainable solutions apply to both the economy and environment and we can meet the needs of everyone without compromising the growth of society if done properly.
Earth Rebirth won the 2014 Oklahoma Recycling Nonprofit of the Year from Metropolitan Environmental Trust of Tulsa, the 2015 Environmental Excellence Winner (40,000+ city pop.) from Keep Oklahoma Beautiful, and the 2016 Small Business Recycling Award from the Norman Chamber of Commerce.
Some of Andrew’s main focuses with Earth Rebirth are promoting local sustainability with urban garden setups — some at local public schools — and cleaning, testing, and appreciating our local water sources.
Andrew’s work is in alignment with several United Nations Sustainable Development Goals including Good Health and Well-Being and Sustainable Cities and Communities. We are proud to have him in our community and on our panel.
Join us on October 28th at 12 pm at Mayflower Congregational Church for our Global Goals, Local Leaders panel and fundraiser. There will be a silent auction and lunch buffet. Tickets are available on Eventbrite and are $20 for adults and $10 for students.
