BUSINESS JUICE mixes friendly networking with short, smart talks for Barcelona’s expat
‘preneurs (entre, micro, solo, budding). This event features a thought-provoking, pithy-advice-giving guest speaker and a light breakfast.
January’s Guest speaker: Susan Llewelyn Leach of Bitsy Bags
Topic: This is a business story in which clarity about the Bigger Picture nurtured perseverance and ultimately progressed into a bona fide product. Susan Llewellyn Leach enjoys being one of the brains behind BitsyBags, one small but mighty solution to the ginormous problem of plastic pollution. But, there were many times this accidental – even reluctant – greenpreneur wanted to quit her eco-startup. There were so many bends and dips in the learning curve. Dedication to Mother Earth kept her going, as did a dogged determination to be a part of the change she wanted to see in the world.
About the Speaker: A journalist for over 20 years, Susan has written extensively about sustainability issues in Spain, including the alarming impact of plastic pollution on the environment. These reporting experiences inspired her and a friend to help consumers reduce their plastic habit by creating a beautiful alternative to the single-use bags used for fruit and veg in supermarkets and fruterías. BitsyBags launched in 2016 and has been touted in La Vanguardia, El Periódico, and other conscious consumerism sites, such as Opcions.
Fee: 8€. Includes a raffle ticket for a set of Bitsy Bags! All proceeds benefit two local NGOs, Mujeres Pa’Lante and Fundació Concepció Juvanteny.
