The Center for Environmental Initiatives is hosting a series called Green Drink Events; which "provide opportunities for people to make friends, develop new ideas, and learn from the collective knowledge of the group." This networking opportunity was shared by GrowWNY and as our burgeoning non-for-profit is partnering with Modern Recycling,Living Green Institute and get a sense of the facilities' operations.
The groups of people waiting to visit met for orientation at the Hopkins Street entrance, putting on hard hats and reflective vests and safety glasses.
Modern Recycling, "for a decade, Modern has collected the methane gas from our landfill, grown hydroponic tomatoes, and found a way to recycle tires, all of which benefit both the community, and the environment." I was impressed and am eager to start working with such an excellent environmentally friendly partner.
