About this session:
- Zero Waste Cities: Revolutionary solutions to plastic waste in the global south: Monica Wilson, Associate Director, GAIA U.S. Office. - Southeast Asia is often portrayed as the epicenter of the plastic waste crisis. But the story is more complex. Large scale centralized waste systems don’t work in this region. Instead, decentralized, community-led zero waste systems are transforming cities, saving money, and keeping plastic out of the ocean. Groundbreaking new data from zero waste cities uncovers the true culprits behind the plastic pollution crisis.
- An Emerging UK Multi-Stream Approach Could Replace Single-Stream Comingling: Eric Randall, Director of Recycling & Founder, Bryson Recycling. - Eric Randall from Bryson Recycling in Northern Ireland will outline how a new approach to domestic collections of recyclables that generates high quality materials, results in low overall costs; avoids the export of recyclables; generates hundreds of manufacturing jobs and results in tens of £millions of added value to the local economy.
- Adventures in Compost: Turning a Passion for the Environment into a Growing 7-figure Business: Lisa von Sturmer, Founder & CEO, Growing City.
After a successful career as an editor in the professional MMA sports & television world, Lisa decided to follow her passion for the environment into a completely new direction: corporate composting. Ten years and tens of millions of pounds of waste later, she proved to naysayers that the world was ready for mainstream organics recycling. Join her as she shares her story of taking a mini-van and a $15,000 loan and turning it into a seven-figure business that has seen double digit growth for over the past 5 years.
- Solving the Global Recycling Crisis: JD Lindeberg, President and Managing Partner, Resource Recycling Systems. - Recycling is under fire in the US because of the impact of Green Fence and National Sword. Yet, at the same time it is one of the most beloved environmental activities of participants across the country AND it provides a practical way for individuals and families to do something tangible about climate change. JD Lindeberg will argue that instead we should resist the urge to cut back on programs and the industry and local units of government should instead take the opposite tack and reinvest in a strong infrastructure, focus on local markets, and improve material quality. The economy and the environment will benefit.
