First up to the pitch is Matt McHugh. Matt is our chief recycling ranger. He makes the actual recycling process keep rolling. He’s the RMI van master and can talk environmental issues with the best of ’em. When not working with RMI he is also a pizza god at Fong’s Pizza. Be nice to him late at night.

I got involved with RMI because my good friend Ciji had this great idea and needed some help. At first I didn’t have time to get involved as much as I would have liked to.  I was feeling pretty stale in Des Moines and needed an outlet for my passion. Having grown up appreciating the earth, I loved the idea and was excited to make time to jump on board and add to the movement.
