Event Details

Join us for a special day with businesses committed to creating a more sustainable environment. We are featuring:

Valley Malt
Just like you cannot make bread from wheat unless it has been milled, you cannot make beer from barley unless it has been malted. Upon learning that most malts going into craft beers are produced on a massive scale by a handful of mega-malthouses on the other side of the country or across the world, Valley Malt sought to change that.

In early 2010 Andrea started to talk about grain with local farmers and began to select varieties of barley with breeders from the midwest. The goal was to figure out what varieties would grow best in New England and help businesses source locally and responsibly.

ChopValue
Our mission is to redefine the term waste to resource, one chopstick at a time.
ChopValue realized that in order to prove sustainable business concepts that rely on under-utilized resource supply, there must be thought leaders who show its viability. Concepts have to be interesting, something easy to comprehend, and something that elicits emotions towards the problem of linear economy and our vast amount of waste. 10 million repurposed chopsticks later, our story resonates with people and we believe that we have the responsibility to educate, inspire, and set an example that resource efficiency thinking should simply be the norm.

Black Earth Compost
Black Earth Compost was founded in January 2011 in Gloucester, MA. Originally a one man, one truck Cape Ann company, it has steadily grown to become the leading full service compost company in New England. Now with more than 30 trucks in service, we are dedicated to collecting food scraps from residents, schools, supermarkets, colleges, and more all across eastern MA and RI. We are also the only vertically integrated company that composts the material too, returning it to customers and selling it in garden centers across Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. Whatever your organic waste collection or garden soil needs, we are your one stop shop.

Framingham State University
Framingham State University has been a leader among universities nation-wide in promoting sustainable practices on campus, as well as offering degree opportunities in several fields allowing for students to not only gain experience through internships but to find permanent employment in the growing fields of environmental endeavors and policy.

Pizza Project
Allie and Dan Spinale began Pizza Project in the Spring of 2021 creating naturally leavened pizzas made from stone milled flours. Feeling inspired by all types of pizza, their vision for a business evolved into creating a mobile pizzeria that continues an adventurous spirit of experimenting with new techniques, using local and in season ingredients, and baking different styles of pizza. In January 2022, they moved forward with the idea of adding naturally leavened bread to the menu as it felt like the natural next step.
