Can green enterprise revitalize America’s most distressed communities? Meet entrepreneur Tyrone Mullins and his peers in low-income urban neighborhoods who tell their stories, speak the truth about waste, and mobilize many thousands of residents to recycle and compost for the first time. By showing documentary stories and organizing discussions with property managers, community leaders, public officials and policy makers, our work secures contracts and creates jobs, reducing landfill waste by 50%. Each Green Streets worker recycles approximately 20,000 gallons of waste per month, and becomes a steward of his or her community.
In neighborhoods plagued by drugs and turf conflicts, enterprising young men and women who used to think they were unemployable are becoming beacons of hope.
Get more details.
Host Kevin Hunter features guest John Leber from Swanson Bark and Wood Products, Inc in Longview, Washington. Swanson Bark and Wood Products is a woodwaste recycling facility.
Here are some thoughts from John:
My advice is to be patient. Don’t get too spun up over any one thing. Life will hand you things that will give you ulcers. How you deal with those things will determine the number of ulcers you end up with.
Have a plan. Figure out what you’re going to sell, who you’re going to sell it to, how you’re going to make it, how much you can sell it for and how much it’s going to cost you to make it. If it doesn’t look like it’s going to work, take a pass and try the next thing. If you keep a positive attitude, there will be a next thing, probably more next things than you can handle. Love life.

A NEW REPORT ON GREEN TEA EXTRACTS AND LIVER INJURY IS THERE TRUTH OR NOT?
Join Southeast Green as we continue our month long series on GMOs and education. We will be interviewing Melinda Hicks, creator and momtrepreneur of Little Me Tea.
It all started with a search for a truly healthy kids’ drink for our baby girl, Julia. The 100% juices were loaded with sugar. Flavored waters lacked nutrition. Even so-called “healthy” organic brands added cane sugar. No thanks!
So Melinda and Michael Hicks set out to create a better drink for children based on something as pure and wholesome as nature itself — tea. Some call it nature’s wonder drug, and it’s no wonder. From this little green leaf comes a powerhouse of beneficial nutrients like antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Little Me Tea is a delicious blend of caffeine-free tea kicked up with fruit and vegetable juices. It’s rich in nutrients, super-low in sugar, Non-GMO and organic to the core. In today’s polluted, nutrient-deficient world, our children need a true force of nature to keep them healthy and strong. That’s why we created Little Me Tea — the healthiest kids’ drink on the planet.
