For over two decades, the Women’s Environmental Network Minnesota has been fostering professional networks for women working to protect the environment. We wouldn’t be where we are today without our members and sponsors. Sponsors enable us to organize informative events and provide important networking opportunities for professionals in the environmental field. Get to know this year’s annual sponsor, MN Waste Wise.
Tell everyone more about MN Waste Wise, your organization’s history, and mission.
The Minnesota Waste Wise Foundation was created in 1994 to assist businesses in Minnesota. For the past 25 years, the Minnesota Waste Wise Foundation has helped thousands of organizations throughout the state minimize their impact on the environment and achieve cost savings through waste reduction, recycling, energy efficiency, and other sustainability initiatives. Our services are focused on implementing or improving any number of waste reduction, recycling, and organics diversion activities resulting in quantifiable waste diversion.
How did Waste Wise initially connect with WEN?
Waste Wise Senior Sustainability Specialist, Michelle Palm, is a board member of the Women’s Environmental Network and brought to my attention all the great work that WEN does and thought it would be a good fit.
What was the motivation to become an annual sponsor of WEN?
MN Waste Wise believes in supporting professional groups that our team members are involved in. After speaking with Michelle about WEN and how passionate she is towards WEN’s mission, it was obvious that this was a perfect fit.
