Mayor Frank Jackson: Cleveland is heading in the right direction, but “will we be first” in building a truly sustainable city, “a green city on a blue lake”?

Tom Morley of Lube Stop: Lube Stop’s EcoGuard re-refined oil change now accounts for 47 percent of its oil changes.
Attendee: Define zero waste as the combination of nothing to landfalls, no waste or misuse of land, and no waste of human potential.
Attendee: Ideas for “Renovating the Rust Belt”
City of Atlanta sustainability coordinator Lynette Young: Leadership + Collaboration + Timing = Innovation
