HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT MILKCRATE?

Philadelphia has a very vibrant start up community, but it is surprisingly small and intimate. I had been hearing “buzz” about MilkCrate in my entrepreneurial travels but didn’t really understand the full force of it until I saw CEO, Morgan Berman speak at an event hosted by the Alliance of Women Entrepreneurs (AWE). I remember thinking — wow, what a great idea! We’ll all be hearing more of this. Little did I know how much more!

WHAT DREW YOU TO WANT TO GET INVOLVED?

I believe people decide to work at startups because they believe in the mission but equally or maybe even more importantly, they believe in the leadership. I believe in the mission of encouraging and growing impactful behaviors and I also believe in Morgan’s vision on how to move the company there.

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE GREEN BUSINESSES or ACTIVITIES?

My family and I enjoy “the land”. We love to grow our own vegetables and herbs, compost, and we are fiends about recycling and reusing containers and carriers.

WHAT IMPACT DO YOU THINK MILKCRATE FOR COMMUNITIES CAN HAVE ON AN ORGANIZATION?

Having spent the majority of my corporate life in manufacturing, I understand the importance of high safety and environmental standards. I also know that the achievement of any higher-level business goal depends on each person doing his or her part. MilkCrate allows individuals to do and measure their parts so that the community can become stronger and more positively impactful. Win-Win for everyone!
