AWARE uses recycling, education, the arts, collaboration, job creation and economic development to build healthy Communities.
It is our goal to build a sustainable model that can be reconstructed anywhere on the planet and begin helping that community. The purpose of each model is to help local and global economies, families, culture and the environment of that region.
In collaboration with Will Make Film for Food we are combining recycling, film, technology and innovation to create high quality films and film equipment that is affordable and open to projects with a positive message.
In these past 8 years of building; we've learned a lot. One of those being: for very little money, we can create a lot of jobs and do a lot of good in our community.
We have already secured a warehouse! The AWAREhouse! Right now it is our goal to open 3 more recycling centers prior to the end of the year. This will create 18 jobs in our community and give us an opportunity to collect more recyclable material to turn into art!!!! Previously, with just one recycling center in operation we were able to help over 15 people off of the streets and keep more than 2 million pounds of waste out of our landfills.

Does you happiness depend upon old beleifs that are no longer valid? Are your ideas about Love still current? If we stopped for just a moment and put our busy lives on hold, would we be able to answer these questions?
My special guest, Betsy Chasse, co-creator behind the sleeper hit, What The Bleep Do We Know, asked herself these and other questions and came up with some surprising answers. She wrote a book about it called, Tipping Sacred Cows, and I can't wait to hear more. Betsy also promised to share a few tidbits about the sequel to the What The Bleep movie due later this year.
Small Warning: Betsy is very outspoken on certain subjects and her language reflects it. Love that Blogtalk Radio doesn't restrict, censor or bleep. Hope you do too.
Our Let's Stir Things Up segment takes a look at how we're doing with recycling all that paper and plastic -- are we making progress at preserving our planet's resources or losing the battle? Are we more or less aware than we were 10 years ago?
Finally, a few helpful details about the year ahead -- last Sunday was the first day of the Tibetan New Year, and we have just enetered the year of the (male) Water Horse!

When Ron Gonen, co-founder of RecycleBank stepped down as CEO of his company, he had to determine his next move. It wasn't until he was approached by Michael Bloomberg, the 108th Mayor of NYC, that it all became clear what his next steps should be.
Now as the Deputy Commissioner of Sanitation, Recycling and Sustainability, Ron is working on developing and implementing a plan to divert 30% of New York's waste stream from landfills by 2017. "If we can figure out what to do with our waste stream here in the city," he says, "it can act as a model for the rest of the country because our waste stream is the most complex in North America."
In the 27th episode of SRO Conversations, Ron discusses some surprising facts when it comes to NYC's waste stream; dives into how working in the world of politics differs from the familiar world of entrepreneurship; how to motivate people through meaning; and living one's life with integrity.

The DIY home renovation concept is a very popular trend, especially with the high cost of home renovation and the need to live more sustainably. Home owners are looking at the comfort and personalization of the home as opposed to buying something that is simply “bigger and better”. Instead of spending a fortune on brand new materials, people are opting to use materials from old buildings or “deconstruction” as well as other materials often headed for landfills. By embracing building concepts such as straw bale building on a community level, people can learn to work together within their own communities to create more affordable housing as they develop a more tight-knit community. In this special series called The Clean Energy View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to author, Jessica Kellner about her book, Housing Reclaimed: Sustainable Homes For Next To Nothing. Jessica will share tips and answer many of the questions home owners have about DIY renovation. Today's show is brought to you by Eden Foods the most trusted name in certified organic clean food!

Any of us who have been paying atttention is aware of how much damage humanity has done and continues to do to Mother Earth. Oil spills on land and in the oceans, floating islands of debris and bulging landfills have been around for decades. Recently the worst nuclear disaster in history took place at Fukishima in Japan and if you think the danger is past you should take a closer look. Join us this Thursday, November 7th from 7p-9p CDT at www.blogtalkradio.com/rapsessions or call 347.857.2097.
The DIY home renovation concept is a very popular trend, especially with the high cost of home renovation and the need to live more sustainably. Providing that you have the expertise or have the proper instruction, it can also be very cost effective as it is good for the environment. The financial costs associated with purchasing a new home has also forced people to go back to basics. Home owners are looking at the comfort and personalization of the home as opposed to buying something that is simply “bigger and better”. Instead of spending a fortune on brand new materials, people are opting to use materials from old buildings or “deconstruction” as well as other materials often headed for landfills. By embracing building concepts such as straw bale building on a community level, people can learn to work together within their own communities to create more affordable housing as they develop a more tight-knit community. How does one begin such an endeavor? What exactly are the building basics that you need to know? How can people collect reclaimed materials? Why are insulation and thermal mass so important? What options are there for utilizing space as well as creating space? How can you incorporate the natural color of materials to enhance the beauty of your home? How can you create a landscape that also lends itself to sustainability?
In this special series called The Clean Energy View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to author, Jessica Kellner about her book, Housing Reclaimed: Sustainable Homes For Next To Nothing.

The Right Stuff: Reflection on Luke 12:13-31
Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost
More and more our lives are defined by “stuff”… getting stuff, keeping stuff, always wanting more and better stuff. Whether it’s a bigger flat screen or a smaller smart phone, there is always more stuff out there that upon attainment will finally make us happy. Meanwhile attics, basements, landfills and junkyards overflow with last year’s gotta-have-it stuff.
Charity, living in the love of Christ, is never a matter of delivering donations at arms-length while we hold our noses. Witnessing Christ’s love, as Christ would love…that’s the right stuff. Living in the love of Christ means ending each day rich in grace; prepared to give our lives back to God when he calls; humbly, gratefully hoping that the barns of our souls are overflowing with the right stuff.
ENVISION THIS: Becoming a change agent who helps people move beyond their comfort zones to co-create inspiring solutions to felt needs in your community—be it family, neighborhood, region, nation, or the globe.
Our guest, Les Robinson has written an inspiring book about designing effective change projects that he calls CHANGEOLOGY. It simplifies a vast body of theory and practice into six principles: buzz, hope, enabling environments, sticky solutions, ‘can do,’ and the right inviter. These are explained with fascinating real-life stories and a look at the hard evidence. The book is written in an easy, accessible style, with plenty of anecdotes and stories.
Les has worked on citizen campaigns in Australia against sand mining, freeways, landfills, and Sydney’s only waste incinerator which sparked his interest in social change. He is now a full time change facilitator, working with government agencies and councils — training, facilitating, and advising practitioners on change programs in areas like health, sustainability, road safety, and emergency management. He runs his own business, Enabling Change. Les Robinson's website is www.enablingchange.com.au. For ideas and inspirations, you can join the Changeology Discussion Group on LinkedIn.
