Meet Renne Peperone and Lisa Bloodgood, the women behind Bushwick Eco Action Network (BEAN). Bushwick Eco Action Network (BEAN) provides a forum for ecological observation, exchange, organizing and action. Inspired by the principles of Permaculture, they seek to create a more balanced urban ecosystem in relationship to Bushwick's neighborhood growth. They will be hosting an E-Waste event with the Lower East Side Ecology Center on April 13th at Maria Hernandez Park. You can find information on how LES Ecology Center processes the E-Waste from their collection events here.


"Bushwick is just seeming to organize around environmental issues. We wanted to strengthen the networks that are already there." [04:00]
