A BIG Thank You to all of you who came out to the Green Living Workshop held at the Madinah Center. Mashallah, the turn out was great. We even had some sisters sit on the floor!
We had a very informative discussion and Q/A during the workshop. Even after the class was over, no one was ready to go home. Most of the sisters stuck around to exchange ideas. I got to meet many new sisters and hear about their plans to make GREEN changes in their lives.
I prepared a hand out of recipes for the participants of the class.We made our own Laundry detergent and took it home in reusable glass jars. The focus of the class was on why toxins are harmful, disease/illness on the rise and how to make informed decisions as consumers. We looked at alarming stats-- while we are on the topic, did you know that 61% of popular red lipstick brands contain lead?!
Everyone can look up recipes or green living tips in documentaries, books or online. Its important to remember that a workshop setting encourages conversation, exchange of ideas, sisterhood, unity and awareness and activism on another level.
If you have the option, I would encourage all of you to attend in person. There will be many workshops at the Madinah Center Inshallah.
If you were not able to attend and interested in hosting a Green Living Workshop for your friends and family, please send me an email at email@example.com for more information.
Happy Friday from our family to yours!
