A man stands on the back of a van and unloads a dumpster full of food waste on to the ground. The good waste includes scraps like watermelon rind, tomato cores, and pineapple tops among other things.

The Green Palette Webinar: A Hopeful Story of Food Waste with Rust Belt Riders on Thursday, June 24 @ 6 PM

Speaker: Michael Robinson, Co-Founder of Rust Belt Riders

Registration is closed, but you can watch the recording here.

Join us for the sixth webinar of the The Green Palette project with Michael Robinson from Rust Belt Riders.

Rust Belt Riders is an organization dedicated to transforming regional food systems through the creation of soil blends from food waste. RBR’s vision is to build a circular economy that improves food security and combat climate change. Since 2014, Rust Belt Riders has been working with people and organizations across Northeast Ohio to provide them with a clean and timely alternative to landfills for their food waste. By diverting food from landfill, Rust Belt Riders supports the local food system through the creation of value added agricultural products. 

This presentation, A Hopeful Story of Food Waste, will start with an overview of the issue of food waste including how, why, and where it happens. Then we’ll get into some of the solutions that RBR provides, how compost works, and how these ideas and practices fit into a circular economy. 

Michael Robinson is a co-founder of Rust Belt Riders. When he’s not working with the RBR team, Michael spends his time reading, cooking, and chilling with his cats Petals and Snork.
