And so he’s gone. But not from our memories of laughter and sadness to which his movies moved us.
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. As Zero Waste champion, Roy traveled across the country to propagate the values of “waste not, dump not, burn not” in countless community and school gatherings and to spread respect and love for Mother Earth.
