EJ Outreach Coordinator with earthday365
 
 
 
earthday365 is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) whose mission is to inspire and mobilize a collaborative movement towards an equitable and environmentally sustainable St. Louis region – every day. We have a major focus on centering equity within the environmental movement, and for that reason we have worked to incorporate environmental justice into each of our programs. This position would be focusing on our Green Dining Alliance and Environmental Justice Days of Action. The Green Dining Alliance, or GDA, is a sustainability certification program with a network of 84 restaurants in the St. Louis region who are audited annually using a 700 point sustainability audit. The GDA Program Manager has been working with a cohort of community leaders who care about vacancy and plastic litter, and have been identifying businesses and restaurants to reach out to and offer education, plastic-free alternatives, and grants to help switch to single-use plastic alternatives. The Environmental Justice Days of Action has held 38 clean-ups and garden days in neighborhoods experiencing illegal dumping and food apartheid, which have collected over 57,928 lbs of illegally dumped trash to date. These Days of Action partner with community groups already focused on illegal dumping, and bring resources such as volunteer outreach, promotion, safety training, food, restrooms, dumpsters, tools, bags, and gloves. This VISTA assignment is part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 7 Green VISTA Corps Program which seeks to help historically underserved communities support environmental stewardship and anti-poverty efforts. The program is focused on creating new partnerships with local organizations in the Region 7 geographic area to support capacity-building projects that will support poverty alleviation and advance efforts to protect human health and the environment.
