EcoRadio KC host Terri Wilke speaks with John Fish Kurmann. John is employed with Bridging the Gap and actively involved with 350.org.
350.org is an international movement of ordinary people working to end the age of fossil fuels and build a world of community-led renewable energy for all. It was founded in 2008 by a group of university friends in the United States along with author Bill McKibben, who wrote one of the first books on global warming for the general public. The goal was to build a global climate movement. 350 was named after 350 parts per million — the safe concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
Bridging the Gap (BTG) works to make the Kansas City region sustainable by “connecting environment, economy and community,” and it is the premier organization in the area providing environmental education and volunteer action through more than 1,800 volunteers annually.
BTG has an active recycling program and currently manages three of KCMO’s recycling centers. BTG is a great source of knowledge on what is recyclable and where to take it for recycling. John is Litter and Green Events Program Associate at BTG. Tune in to learn how to hold large public events without creating large amounts of trash.
Please listen to this positive discussion about the current status of our waste, is it trash or not?
We at EcoRadio KC are glad to encourage awareness and protection of our world. We can create a sustainable present for a sustainable future! This will be a great radio hour!
We hope you tune in!
