II        Evan Edgar, California Compost Coalition (25 minutes)

California’s organic recyclers and compost operators have created a sustainable, scalable industry model for the state, the nation and the world to demonstrate that putting clean, recycled, composted organic materials back into the ground is the most predictable, cost efficient, productive, and eco-friendly use of a natural resource. Our vision is to increase awareness and preference for composting, to accurately represent our members’ interests, and to always preserve and conserve all of our natural resources.

III        Anthony Presto, San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District. (20 minutes)

The San Joaquin Valley Air District is a public health agency whose mission is to improve the health and quality of life for all Valley residents through efficient, effective and entrepreneurial air quality management strategies. Our Core Values have been designed to ensure that our mission is accomplished through commonsense, feasible measures that are based on sound science.

IV        Christine Haruta, Dibs My Way (10 minutes)

Smart Travel means going to work, school or play with other people in carpools or vanpools, or by other smart ways such as transit, walking or biking to decrease traffic and pollution. We are over half-way through 2020 and it is shaping up to be one of the most unique and challenging times for the U.S. and California due to the persistence of Covid-19. Yet, it is also inspiring innovation and change for many industries in order to adapt to our new normal.
