HOW DID YOU HEAR OF MILKCRATE?
I heard about MilkCrate through searching for sustainable companies to reach out to while applying to jobs in the Philadelphia area. I looked into MilkCrate, and after reading Morgan’s story I decided to email her and see if there was any possibility of joining the team.
WHAT DREW YOU TO WANT TO GET INVOLVED?
I am always looking for environmental and “green” programs to get involved in and MilkCrate’s mission to drive sustainability forward really inspired me.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE GREEN BUSINESSES or ACTIVITIES?
Food is my passion and I am always searching for farm-to-table and locally sourced alternatives to food. Philly has many delicious restaurants that are pushing to be more local, and Greensgrow Philly is a great way of connecting communities with urban agriculture and community ‘greening.’ Also, Greensgrow is a great place to volunteer!
WHAT IMPACT DO YOU SEE MILKCRATE HAVING ON ITS CLIENTS AND THE INDIVIDUAL?
MilkCrate is an amazing way for users to connect with the world around them in a positive and sustainable system, while also inspiring others to be more aware of their impact. Sometimes, it can be hard to switch to making more environmentally conscious choices. I think that MilkCrate is a platform that really helps to give that motivation and push to be sustainable, even with small choices, while being able to see the progress you are making.
