Barbara Hetherington is part of the Gibsons Resource Recovery Center team. With her partner, Buddy Boyd, she runs the award winning resource recovery centre in BC. The most recent recognition the GRRC has received is the coveted Best Green Business Award from Small Business British Columbia.
Barb has been a Zero Waste advocate and waste reduction educator in her community for years, and introduced the Zero Waste store five years ago, which has since become a regular meeting and exchange centre for her community. In addition to diverting resources from the landfill, the Zero Waste Store provides a great service to those with limited or fixed incomes.
Barb would rather talk about Zero Waste than herself.
