Sustainability in Florida gets a bad rap. I understand that. Compared to New England, California and Europe, Florida overall lags in conversations about sustainability in business, government and education. Jesse Rittenhouse and Iraklis Kalamenios, co-founders of the Recycling Energy Forum, are working to change that.

Friday, April 24th hosts the first cross-sector Recycling Energy Forum Expo at the Kovens Conference Center in Miami, Florida. Freebee, Whole Foods Market of North Miami, the City of North Miami, Florida International University, and Zipcar are a few of the partners and sponsors of the expo. According to Rittenhouse, the goal is to bring together academics and students with private industries, government, and the public, encouraging them to leave their silos and share their innovations and solutions for a cleaner and healthier world.
