BAN tackles the toughest battles that our society faces today – toxic waste management, fair trade, sustainability, and social justice.

I’ve been in the recycling business since 1980. Throughout my career as both an entrepreneur and an activist, I’ve continually advocated for raising recycling standards. Likewise, e-Stewards continually raises the bar for the recycling industry by defining and promoting only the best recycling practices.

BAN is crucial for sustainability, both for our inspiring vision for a cradle-to-cradle waste management future, and also for our work on the ground ensuring the highest environmental and occupational safety standards. I’m proud to support, volunteer, and advise an organization with such a strong history of success.

BAN is now poised for growing our impact exponentially. We are at a tipping point: we have the expertise, skills, and power to spring forward greater change, we just need core support.

That’s why this BAN Together Campaign is vital. With your help, we can provide BAN with the funding we need to bolster current and expanding programs to ultimately create a more sustainable world.

I invite you to join me in supporting this amazing organization. I ask you to give to the BAN Together Campaign today. 

Thank you!

We’re in the midst of a global toxic emergency. I believe that BAN plays a crucial role in solving this crisis.

I’ve been a supporter of BAN since its founding, and of Jim’s work long before then. Jim Puckett and I have been working on toxic trade issues since the 1980’s, well before Jim founded BAN. He was the first campaigner I met when I first started working for Greenpeace right out of college. Together, he and I tracked and documented waste exports to less industrialized countries around the world, including witnessing the horrors of shipbreaking in South Asia first hand. We’ve worked side by side following trails of toxic waste and advocating at Basel Convention meetings for nearly 25 years. He was my mentor for many years and remains a dear friend and colleague.

Because I’ve been working with Jim for so long, I am absolutely convinced that BAN has the power to challenge the practices of designing for the dump and exporting toxic waste. BAN has done it before, and with continued support, will keep doing it. BAN is truly innovative in creating a sustainable world free of harm from hazardous waste.

You know that feeling of outrage and angst you feel when you see a picture of a heavily polluted dump site in some other country in conditions that would never be allowed in the U.S. and Europe? I know when I see that, my instinct is to want to help. A smart way to do that is to support BAN. BAN is doing such important work, but can’t do it alone – BAN needs our help. I ask you to join me in combating toxic trade by supporting BAN. Please give to the BAN Together Campaign today.

Thank you!
