Why I Care About Recycling and a Circular Economy

“Recycling is a non-negotiable when it comes to improving our current systems, creating a circular economy, and building a world we all want to live in. The brighter future I envision is one where everyone is thoughtful of the impact of our actions and choices and there is equity and access for everyone to choose what is best for our planet.”

Personal Passions and Interests

When she’s not under a blanket and glued to a book, Amanda enjoys being outside; gardening, hiking, or just sitting in the sun to warm up. She lives in Portland, Oregon, where she serves as Board President for a local non-profit, Ecology in Classrooms and Outdoors (ECO).
