Why I Care About Recycling and a Circular Economy

“My father owned and operated a recycling paper mill, so ‘paper drives’ were part of my life from a very young age.  But, looking toward the world that my children and future grandchildren will inhabit, I recognize that it will require a tremendous effort to protect our planet.  That’s why I am proud to be part of The Recycling Partnership’s work, bringing together companies, policymakers, and local communities to improve recycling and galvanize a circular economy.”

Personal Passions and Interests

Marjory loves to sing (she’s in two choirs) and spend time with her husband, three daughters, and apricot poodle, Tilly. She lives in New York City and enjoys urban life, but appreciates running and hiking outside the city.
