Think Reuseables!!

and the Recycling Achives with Gary Liss

ZWACers- Tired of plastic and other unsustainable containers and products? Think Reuseables!!

Our 5/10/22 ZWAC show will feature an interview with two local entrepreneurs making a splash in the reuseable space with two very different market niches and approaches. We will have Amy Golan, founder of Planet Renu ( who has a brick and mortar retail store in Walnut Creek as well as website sales, and Maia Tekle, chief operations officer of Dispatch Goods (, which partners with restaurant delivery services to provide reuseable containers. We will hear about their businesses, their target markets, their barriers to growth, and their zero waste impact. Our monthly segment from the Recycling Archives this month will feature pioneer Gary Liss. Gary is a superhero for his efforts, among many accomplishments,  in preserving the brand and dignity of the term zero waste against the many who would coopt it for their wasting purposes. Archives Director Susan Kinsella will read excerpts from Gary’s interview following which Gary will answer questions;
