Host Kathy Sipple interviews Julie Rizzo, Founder of St. John based Recycled Granite and My Choice Recycling.

In August, 2008, Julie launched Recycled Granite. To date, Julie and her network of stone recyclers have saved an estimated 5,000,000 pounds of granite and stone scraps from being dumped into landfills across America. The stone is repurposed; the recycled granite is used for split stone tile, landscaping pavers, mosaics, aggregates and jewelry.

Rizzo was inducted into the Northwest Indiana Society of Innovators in 2011 and was recognized in the Congressional Record for innovative contributions.
