Ten Circular Cleveland Ambassadors were welcomed to the initiative with a meet and greet reception at Rid-All Green Partnership on Kinsman today. The ambassadors are all passionate City of Cleveland residents who are interested in reducing waste and pollution, while also supporting economic opportunities in their community.

They will participate in the Circular Cleveland initiative for the duration of the grant program by representing and engaging other Cleveland residents and neighborhoods in our transition to a more circular economy.

Each brings a different set of lived experiences and expertise and will participate in the initiative for the duration of the grant program funded through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The ambassadors will serve as liaisons between the planning team and their respective communities–including neighborhoods, faith-based, cultural and other affinity groups.
