Why I Care About Recycling

I see recycling as a win-win: a win for the environment and a win for the economy. Reusing materials not only helps clean up the environment, it also reduces the need to extract more from our planet and keeps those materials supporting a circular economy.”

Personal Passions and Interests

Whitney, her family, and their puppy, Pippa, can usually be found out and about in the Maryland suburbs.
