Trash Trip

Exploring waste, from coast to coast.

Zero Geek – Waste Free

Me at Free Geek - Portland

Me at Free Geek - Portland

Today I got in two interviews:

Jil Zilligen at Zero Waste Alliance and Alison Briggs at Free Geek.

Before, in between, and after, I got lost and discovered parts of Portland!

I got a tidbit of statistics from the Free Geek bulletin board, which I found interesting. . .

2008-2009 Statistics
15,000 total refurbishings
1,000 average donated systems per year to individuals and organizations
6,000 total donated systems
2,597 total tons of e-waste processed
700 current active volunteer (4 or more in recent 90 days)
10,000 total volunteers

A short entry but more to follow!
