Green Mary Gets Events To Zero Waste

Mary Munat is passionate about taking non-garbage
out of the garbage. Last year alone, her team touched the
garbage of over two million people. Present at
over 150 events Bay Area wide, they separate compostable
food and paper, as well as recycleables from garbage.

It all started ten years ago following a Health & Harmony
festival where Mary was Volunteer Coordinator. She
listened to Julia Butterfly Hill, who was newly
down from sitting in her tree, Luna. Butterfly admonished
the eco-savvy crowd to walk their talk. She
observed garbage cans overflowing and little recycling.
