The press begins for the Zero Waste Zone ~ Buckhead! Northside Neighbor journalist Laura Braddick wrote a nice article after attending the May 19 ZWZ~Buckhead Restaurant Participants meeting at the Fish Market. Two other editors, one from Asheville, NC, called and plan to write about ZWZ~Buckhead.

With Sam Massell, Honorary Mayor of Buckhead, the Buckhead Coalition and the Buckhead Life Group support, we anticipate a stampede of press on the Buckhead initiative. Stay tuned as the zone builds and the media reports the progress.
