Old Firehouse Books is thrilled to welcome author and podcaster Tanja Hester to our virtual event space! We'll be celebrating the launch of her book, Wallet Activism: How to Use Every Dollar You Spend, Earn, and Save as a Force for Change, on Tuesday, January 18th at 6pmMT. She'll be joined in conversation by Amanda Holden, writer, blogger, and invensting expert. The event will be streaming to the Old Firehouse Books Facebook page, and is free.
From Tanja Hester, Our Next Life blogger and author of Work Optional, comes the mindset-shifting guide to help you put your money where your values are. Wallet Activism is not a list of dos and don’ts that will soon become outdated, nor does it call for anti-consumerist perfection. Instead, it goes beyond simple purchasing decisions to explore:
• The impacts a financial decision can have across society and the environment
• How to create a personal spending philosophy based on your values
• Practical questions to quickly assess the “goodness” of a product or an entity you may buy from
• The ethics of earning money, choosing what foods to eat, employing others, investing responsibly, choosing where to live, and giving money away
For anyone interested in leaving the world better than you found it, Wallet Activism helps you build habits that will make your money matter.
Books can be shipped anywhere within the United States (unfortunately, we cannot ship internationally).
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
We look forward to seeing you at the event!
