Entrepreneurial Composting for Better Soils, Circular Economics, and Climate Stabilization
Pashon Murray, Detroit Dirt founder

Working to reduce the carbon footprint of Detroit by revitalizing neighborhoods, Pashon Murray is finding solutions to re-use or recycle everyday organic waste. In fact, to Pashon, there is no such thing as waste, and she is on a mission to eliminate landfill use. Murray co-founded Detroit Dirt in 2010, a local composting that is focused on creating a circular economy in Detroit. By diverting organic waste from landfills and turning it into compost, she can help make Detroit a leader in this area, and create a scalable model for other cities. She is passionate about integrating closed-loop systems for corporations, cities, and states across the nation.
