  • What can our households, companies or community organizations do now to go beyond recycling? 
  • How do neighborhoods and local business networks work together to create community ecologies? 
  • What is the economy of scale of effort needed for entire neighborhoods and communities to profitably undertake total recycling, and go beyond to sustainable materials and energy economies?

Jim Shields is a leader in the recycling industry, who has chosen to "give back" by pioneering recycling services which are certified throughout the local and global recycling supply chain. Sustainable Business Networks is creating learning partnerships for green and local living economies.

This program qualifies for CEU credit in the Program in Sustainability Studies of the Adena Center at Webster University.
