Cambridge Natural History Society talk: The world of FairWild

Thu 6 December 2018

David Attenborough Building

Anastasiya Timoshyna of TRAFFIC will discuss the often-unspoken role of wild plants in our daily routines - in teas, cosmetics, medicines and even gin - and how the FairWild sustainability framework is working to protect wild plants in trade, the people who collect them, and the biodiverse ecosystems they're harvested from.

The talk will be followed by a seasonal social with food and drink.
Tickets are £10 each.
Please purchase in advance if possible at tickets@cnhs.org.uk

Established in 2008, the FairWild Foundation www.fairwild.org promotes the sustainable use of wild-collected ingredients, with a fair deal for all those involved throughout the supply chain. FairWild-certified products include herbal teas, medicines, skincare and Green Juniper Organic Gin www.junipergreen.org
