Imagine Nation Brewing and Recycling Works

November 6, 2019

One um alum is getting is putting their environmental degree to work at imagine nation brewing. Ian finch, the community engagement coordinator, helped orchestrate an event with recycling works where community members could drop off their glass bottles. Finch says the work he does through Imagine Nation helps to encourage a dialog among patrons.

“When it comes to sustainability and environmentalism it takes a lot of introspection and a lot of personal change. We are all in this ship together, and so it is about having dialog about what we need and short comings that Missoula still has and you should do it in a very peaceable sort of way where we can actually make it happen as a community.”

Finch said one way community members can be more environmentally conscious is by buying locally and ethically sourced products.

Imagine nation will be hosting a craft’s fair in mid-December which will feature locally made items such as jewelry and cleaning soaps.
