DUBLIN, Ohio June 14, 2020 – Arley Owens, Executive Director for the Ohio Recycling Coalition, announced today the national launch of a much needed economic power driver, “America 2.0 Strategic Strike Stimulus, Made In America NOW!  

“The Ohio Recycling Coalition’s Leadership Team made a critical business assistance decision to help America’s Recycling Industry. To accomplish this the Ohio Recycling Coalition will champion promoting the reduction of the dependence of overseas factories to manufacture goods and products made from the recycled materials such as; plastic, steel, aluminum, glass, e-waste, corrugated, textiles and styrofoam shipped to them by America’s Recycling Industry.”

“The Ohio Recycling Coalition’s America 2.0 Strategic Strike Stimulus, Made In America NOW! was formulated to spark a national movement centered on bringing back and restarting America’s manufacturing and fabrication of products and goods made from integrating recycled material as a source of feedstock, stated E. Louise Holiday, President of the Ohio Recycling Coalition and the Jefferson County Education Coordinator for the JB Green Team Solid Waste Authority located in Steubenville, Ohio. Made In America NOW! has the capability to create jobs, provide gainful employment and training for America’s unemployed or underemployed. Promoting Made In America NOW’s Seven Power Point Plan will become the framework to revitalize, rebuild and restore America’s Recycling Manufacturing Industry.”

Sophia Huda, Vice President, for the Ohio Recycling Coalition and Communications and Public Affairs Expert for Sustainability and the Circular Economy for the greater New York City Area said, “We must turn to ourselves, the Recycling, Waste Management and Sustainable Industry, to Restart, Reset, Retool and Revive our Recycling Industry.” America has the wherewithal, the engineering capability, and the vacant or underutilized factories, store fronts, deserted shopping centers necessary for new use manufacturing, fabrication and fashion centers. Together we will and can make this happen!”
