Shifting Gears: Going Green in the Motor City

 Recycle Here

Years ago the city of Detroit was the largest city in the United States that had no city-wide recycling program. While most cities had one in place as early as the '70s, Detroit was lagging behind until Matt Naimi started 'Recycle Here', a non-for-profit grassroots organization meant to be the center of recycling in the city of Detroit. With Recycle Here's success, Naimi and partner Steve Harworth created 'Green Safe Products,' a distributor of recyclable and compostable products to restaurants and businesses. Having one of the largest stocks of compostable plates, cups, cutlery, et cetera, Green Safe has paved the way for a greener Detroit as more and more businesses use its products in an effort to be more responsible for their waste.
