On the May edition of Environmentally Sound, host Larry Burns, vice president for external affairs at The University of Toledo, talks with people involved with addressing environmental sustainability concerns on different levels – education, government, business and individual activism.
In this month’s episode:
- Dr. Defne Apul, assistant professor of environmental engineering at The University of Toledo, discusses her unique research into water sustainability and the importance of educating students about carbon footprints.
- We reflect with U.S. Representative John Dingell on his 56 years in Congress where he authored environmental legislation, preserved wetlands and worked to cap industry pollution.
- Steve Harworth, co-owner of Michigan Green Safe Products, tells us about his business that makes eco-friendly disposable products from corn and sugar cane rather than petroleum-based products.
- And Shaun Nethercott shares how she and her Matrix Theatre Company are raising awareness about the waterways that are now and used to be part of the Detroit area.
