Why I Care About Recycling

“I want to help our partner communities create a world where they have an opportunity to capture value from their waste. Our funding partners allow us to implement strategies in many places that would never have a chance at success because of restrained budgets. We connect funding to our goal of material capture.”

Personal Passions and Interests

Chris and his wife spend their free time in the outdoors on foot, bike, and board experiencing the world through the eyes and hearts of their two school-aged children.
