StyrofoamMom Emerges from the Lab thanks to PEDC & LERCPA

StyrofoamMom finished out her very social week networking with her favorite
Hive of Leaders in Energy LERCPA. Executive Director Janine Finnell, the LERCPA board and a team of advisors delighted guest with an inspirational presentation that aligned 4 generations of trail blazers and made StyrofoamMom
so grateful to call each a partner in the solutions rather than co-complainers.support for ideas that design EPS out of the waste stream. Lifetime Achievement
