Greenovate Boston’s Upcycling Panel

Each year, Americans throw out close to 3000 pounds of waste. Come hear about how some Bostonians are reinventing trash as treasure, from transforming unused shipping containers to hydroponic farms, old t-shirts into quilts, and how you can upcycle e-waste & retired electronics into charitable giving without writing a check.

How does upcycling compare to recycling? How do shipping containers become hydroponic farms and old t-shirts turn into quilts? How does upcycling electronics create funding for non-profits and charities?

Join us at District Hall, Tuesday September 16 from 6-7:30 PM to hear from a panel of Boston entrepreneurs and experts who are transforming trash into treasure!

Speakers include:

Brooke Nash (MassDEP), Municipal Waste Reduction Branch Chief

Brad McNamara (Freight Farms), CEO/Founder, Freight Farms

Ross Lohr (Project RePat), CEO/Founder, Project RePat

Julie Shane (Causes International), CEO/Founder, Causes International
