Re-painted Recycling CanRe-painted Recycling CanBen Bezark performs presentations and conducts waste audits at middle and high schools throughout Alameda county as EarthTeam’s Waste Action Assistant.  Ben studied community development at the University of Vermont, and has a passion for reuse, re-purpose, and doing it yourself. Through this blog, he hopes to gain new insight into the world of consumption and waste (which is to say, the world we live in) and the many actions that are being taken to reduce, reuse, recycle, and rot our way to a more meaningful life, more sustainable communities, and a healthier life.

Caroline Sandifer is EarthTeam’s Climate Action Campaign Director. She spends her time digging through trash with students, leading environmental club meetings, and supporting SLWRP, as well as climate justice issues, at schools. Her love, as a child, of archaeology, has now translated to the excavation of, and investigation into, garbage - and the infinitely neat things people throw away! As a previous English and Creative Writing double major, she is also fascinated by the stories people tell about waste and consumption: whether it’s the media in their steady stream of advertisements, the language people use in describing their experiences with garbage, or the challenges and successes she’s observed at school campuses. Through this blog, Caroline hopes to re-claim the phrase “Talkin’ Trash” as a positive way to open the conversation about the 4Rs and what we use, what we throw away, and what it says about us.
