Waste Free Earth is a See Change Partner

As consumers, we produce trash. From the packaging of a product to the product itself, we are generating waste. Especially now with COVID-19 restrictions, take out and single-use plastics have gone up exponentially, filling up our landfills. At the helm of combatting the way we produce and consume waste is Waste Free Earth, a consulting company based in Burlington, Vermont. Waste Free Earth helps businesses be more proactive about their waste management.

Marina McCoy, founder and CEO of Waste Free Earth and Sustainability Programming Manager Alexandra Thompson work together to direct businesses and events to be environmentally conscious. They equip their clients with the tools and tricks they need to reach their zero waste goals, along with the education and enthusiasm to keep that momentum going forward to create change for future generations.

In 2020, McCoy was nominated for Vermont’s Young Entrepreneur of the Year. She also was awarded Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility Young Change Maker, Vermont Business Magazine 40 under 40, and nominated for 1% For the Planet’s Pinnacle Award: Unleash Passion Every Day. Even in her time off, McCoy lives zero waste and has been doing so for six years strong.

Shortly after COVID hit, McCoy pivoted her entire events-based business online, providing services like company-wide challenges, workshops and trainings, hourly consulting, and even an online learning platform. With nearly a decade worth of experience in the sustainability field, McCoy has developed proven strategies to lessen waste and better the environment, making Waste Free Earth a valued partner helping to produce See Change Sessions. McCoy and Thompson will present two sessions together: Greenwashing 101 and the other focused on waste and industry solutions.
