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.
