|A group of happy sponsors & advisors|
Dr. Marlin Gottschalk, Director of the Sustainability Division of the GA Department of Natural Resources, reported on WHY Ei projects are important to the environment and business culture. Marlin also moderated the strategy session that brought the formal part of the meeting to a close.
As the individuals/corporations attending contributed the resources, funding, time and in-kind services necessary to bring Ei to this impressive threshold, their input is vital to Ei's future direction. In short summary, the group was amazed at the accomplishments made on a shoestring budget. To bring Ei to the next level of funding and impact, focus is the key operative to propel the Zero Waste Zones and other initiatives to their full potential.

Following the formal meeting, the group enjoyed a wine and cheese reception sponsored by Bold American Catering. Yes, it was a zero waste reception!
Thank you to those who made Ei their priority on November 18. It is an honor to be supported by such a professional, passionate group willing to commit resources to evolving corporate business practices.
