From Stacey Cordeiro, founder of Boston Center for Community Ownership:
Hi my co-op community, I wanted to let you know about a new worker co-op forming in Boston. It will be a full-service recycling and disposal service for neighborhood restaurants, closing local food loops by composting food scraps for local farmers and collecting waste vegetable oil for biofuel. Today is the first day of a long process of raising enough money for trucks and equipment. This is a member driven effort, with local entrepreneurs from African American and Latino communities coming together to create this business. They have been working hard for over a year to create a solid business plan to make this happen.
Even if you can’t donate, I really recommend visiting their Indiegogo site to watch the short video, it’s really beautiful.

Looking forward to seeing many of you this week at ECWD!
