Rural Action AORC - Zero Waste Cohort
 
 
 
Serve alongside 3-5 team members in our Zero Waste Cohort for 6 months as part of the Appalachian Ohio Restore Corps (AORC). Stationed primarily at Upcycle Ohio, the Zero Waste cohort will focus on material recovery and organization, medical supply collection and distribution, Center for Hard to Recycle Material event, and more. All service will be in support of Rural Action's commitment to promote the development of a zero-waste economy. In a zero-waste economy, product development prioritizes conservation of natural resources, product design incorporates ways to facilitate and encourage post-consumer reuse, repair, recycling, or composting, and all discards become assets that benefit the people, the planet, and the local economy. We support this ideal through general education about waste reduction & recycling, waste assessments of businesses, schools and organizations, zero waste events, social entrepreneurship, and the implementation of the Athens-Hocking Zero Waste Action Plan. Stationed primarily at Upcycle Ohio, the Zero Waste cohort will focus on material recovery and organizatino, medical supply collection and distribution, Center for Hard to Recycle Material event support, and more.
