Today on The Weekly Plug we look at Coors Light Lideres, which nominated Gabe Middleton for a $25,000 grant, a look back at our recent event with Frontier Communications through La Opinion and what the impact of e-waste recycling will have on the circular economy in this edition of The Weekly Plug.

The Future Of E-Waste In The Circular Economy How we manage e-waste in the future will require us to use our resources differently. One promising option to limit our waste is with the circular economy. This process can reuse our old electronics efficiently while simultaneously creating jobs and remove harmful chemicals from the environment.
