We will be talking with 'ecological designer', Jim Bell. The following statement, in his own words, can be found on his website, www.jimbell.com.
We are astronauts on Spaceship Earth
Like any well-designed spaceship, ours has a life support system. Our planet’s life support system is a solar powered recycling system. In this system the Sun provides the energy to recycle and renew the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat and everything we want or care about.
Our planet’s life support system is fundamental to everything we are and will ever be. It is the foundation of all history, culture, art, science, religion, and even the very process of consciousness becoming.
If our human family doesn’t develop life support sustaining ways to live and make livings soon, our planet’s life support system will collapse with much suffering and regret along the way.
I believe we can completely avoid this calamity. I believe we can create economies and ways of life that are fair, just, respectful, humane, prosperous, and completely life support sustaining.
All that’s required is that enough of us work together to make it happen. When good people come together, the only limit is our imagination and consciousness. And ultimately there is no limit to that.
I committed to taking a leadership role in this effort. I invite you to join me. We’ll all feel better, and our children and future generations will thank us. Jim Bell
Dianna Cohen, CEO and Co-Founder
The Plastic Pollution Coalition is working to help END our cycle of plastics use - yes - END! Dianna was inspired to co-found the group by her work as an artist because her chosen material is the ubiquitous plastic bag. In one bio I read about her she writes: "Having worked with the plastic bag as my primary material for the past fifteen years, all of the obvious references to recycling, first-world culture, class, high and low art give way to an almost formal process which reflects the unique flexibility of the medium." With the Plastic Pollution Coalition, she helps to raise awareness of ocean waste -- the majority of which is nondegradable plastic -- and everyday strategies to cut down the amount of plastic we use and throw away. This show was made possible due to the generous support of The Fairfax Companies.

This will be an unconventional episode where anything can happen. We do have Raven's Rant Today, minireadings and talking about our experiences with Pluto being in Retrograde.

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.

Trish has spent a lifetime around the development, internal operations and ever-changing dynamics of the thrift store industry; learning much about the business from her grandfather, Walter D “Bud” Ellison, who was instrumental in launching the ARC Thrift Stores in Colorado in the 1960’s. Trish began working directly in the thrift store and secondary material recycling industry in 1996.
Patricia launched Snow Lion Inc., one of the first e-commerce used book businesses, in 2003. Just four years later, she founded Cycla, LLC, thrift recycling professionals, to address the recycling needs of thrift and consignments store owners, commercial laundries, textile clothing manufactures, and most recently the county prison systems.
While her businesses were environmentally impactful, Trish was missing the local community connection and charitable component she grew up with in her family’s businesses. So, in 2011 she started Recycle That, LLC, to combine textile material collection with the opportunity to raise funds and give back to local non-profit organizations.
Recycle That connects communities to recycling by reusing and repurposing its goods. The company forms community partnerships with non-profit organizations to create a sustainable funding source to support their causes. Via donation centers, collection box programs and special events, Recycle That enables its charitable partners to collect used textiles as a means of fundraising. Current partners include, Habitat for Humanity Restores, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Hospice of Saint John, American Heart Walk, and local faith based communities.

Recycle Radio: Making the Most of Yard Sales and Flea Markets
It's an average weekend in Small Town (or Big City), USA. If there isn't a monsoon, blizzard or temperatures below zero, chances are, you'll find a yard sale or flea market somewhere in town. (And even if they are in the forecast, there are always the indoor flea markets, which operate rain or shine!)
Yard sales and Flea Markets have become a big business for a lot of people. What started out as a way to clean out a closet or basement has turned into a way of life - and full-time occupation - for some people. And for those who prefer selling online, they've become a virtually endless supply of inventory for eBay, Amazon, and Craigslist. Today on Recycle Radio we'll be sharing some hints on how to make the most of shopping at a yard sale or flea market.
