Everything you think you know about recycling glass is wrong. I know. I was heartbroken.
I thought that carefully putting empty bottles and jars in my single-stream recycling bin was the right thing to do. But as Brittany Evans, owner and founder of Clear Intentions shares with us, co-mingled glass inevitably gets broken and becomes too cumbersome to chase around, clean and recycle.
Thankfully, Brittany has a great solution with her business, collecting wine and beer bottles from Denver restaurants, bars and event centers in a way that they can be recycled now, and for generations to come.
Not only is her business a great idea, it's a millennial-owned start up business (also woman-owned) which targets a need, provides a service and helps the environment. We'll talk about how she started Clear Intentions, the challenges of running an entrepreneurial business and much more.
