Tim thinks communities of color shouldn’t be left out of the new green economy.
Guadalupe believes workers, not big corporations, should profit from their labor.
Steven wants to keep the money he earns circulating in the community he’s lived in all his life.
These are just some of the reasons African American and Latino workers came together to form the unique bilingual, multicultural co-op called CERO. They’ve invested two years of sweat equity into building a worker-owned business. In its first year CERO will reduce customer trash sent to landfills and incinerators by 50% and return more than 1000 tons of organic food waste to the food chain as rich composted soil.
Will you help CERO get up and running?
We need trucks and equipment to get our source separation recovery systems operational. This campaign will show investors and lenders that we have serious support. The proceeds will seed our direct public offering so that community folks, even those who don't have a whole lot to invest, can have a stake in our success too. We've already got customers lined up. With your help we can get the trucks and equipment we need to do the job.
