Meet The Team Behind The Tech

👋 Meet Sarah Herzig!

Sarah is known as “The Recycler” in her friend group, and she’s passionate about following the Three Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle — in that order.

“Reducing would be the number one thing—really trying to figure out ways that you can reduce because so many items are hard to recycle! And reusing or donating things and buying things from a donation center instead of buying new. So I find that all of those are really important,” she says.

Get to know Sarah in our latest blog!
