The officers, members and staff of the EcoWaste Coalition express sadness for the untimely departure of Roy Alvarez, our former president (2010-2012), whom we hold in high esteem for his animated commitment to the pursuit of Zero Waste, a vision of a restored ecological order where nothing is wasted dumped or burned.

Frank Chavez: ‘a good man, a truly great man’

Moved he must have been by two articles published by the Inquirer in October 2010 (“Are you smarter than a fifth grader?” and “Wood, with a gift for burning”), former Solicitor General Frank Chavez wrote me and offered “to represent you, free-of-charge, should you need legal assistance, because I believe in the justness of your cause and in the generational goodness it brings.”
