While some plastic use is absolutely necessary and saves lives, such as in the medical field, others are totally optional. What if you could reduce your plastic use by 20%? 50%? What if our ultimate goal was over 90%? Here to talk to us today about this very real possibility is a woman who puts her money where her mouth is. With her husband, she’s the owner of a new retail store that not only offers refillable packaging on things like bulk foods, but also things like shampoo, household cleaners, coffee, and much more. They also own and operate a commercial composting company that picks up from stores and residential developments. Please welcome the owner of the ZERO-WASTE grocery store “Pick Eco Refills” in Chilliwack, Salina Derish.
My guest today is a specialist in the art of setting and achieving goals. Her work in counselling psychology, and especially, her work with performance athletes – and as an athlete herself, has helped her understand first-hand the obstacles we all face, and what it takes to overcome them. She is a Registered Clinical Counsellor through the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. She completed a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology (MACP) through Yorkville University. Additionally, she is a Canadian Sports Psychology Association Mental Performance Consultant (MPC) member, as well as several other specialist designations. She and her team host a year-long goal-setting program for professionals, athletes, and anyone else working towards a goal. Her practice also includes counselling for a variety of mental health issues, and even a program that will literally help you climb mountains!
