Fourth International Reuse Conference and Expo in Greater Boston
The Greater Boston region has been selected to host ReuseConex 2016, the fourth International Reuse Conference and Expo. The event, taking place from October 17 to 19 at the Holiday Inn, in Somerville, will highlight the entrepreneurial spirit of reuse.
ReuseConex 2016 will feature professional training opportunities with experts from the reuse industry as well as reuse-based exhibitors, a documentary film screening and tours of local reuse organizations. This year’s conference theme is Leveraging REUSE in a Circular Economy, with a focus on bringing real world reuse practices to life.
Co-hosts are Reuse Institute and the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection. “ReuseConex 2016 will help showcase New England’s sustainability ethic,” says MaryEllen Etienne of Reuse Institute. “Not only does the region have a community that encourages its citizens to do their part toward climate protection through resource conservation, but it’s home to a wide array of reuse organizations and has the reuse ‘know-how’ to host a spectacular experience for conference guests from all over the world.”
The event serves as a platform to share innovative reuse initiatives, transformative ideas, and replicable and scalable programs, research and policy. Attendees include reuse operation managers, environmental educators, economic development leaders, environmental activists, eco-entrepreneurs, green builders and recycling coordinators.
