Charlotte, NC

Ei visited Charlotte for a series of meetings and tours to explore the landscape for the Zero Waste Zones and a Sustainable Food Court Initiative (SFCI) pilot. The day started with a tour of Concord Mills, a Simon mall, followed by a back-of-the-house tour of the Charlotte Douglas International Airport. and ending with the Charlotte Green Team meeting. It was a rewarding visit for Ei Founder Holly Elmore and Doug Kunnemann, SFCI Co-Chair with NatureWorks. The ZWA Blog article, Fertile Charlotte Grounds provides a trip overview, while the Ei FB album 10-19-11 Charlotte Visit gives a pictorial recap.
