Recycling feature in Globe and Mail's Report On Business Magazine

This was definitely the most interesting assignment I had while I was back in Canada last year. Toronto writer John Lorinc and I produced this feature for Report On Business Magazine profiling companies using innovative approaches to recycling. It was a fascinating project to work on and even got to blow the dust off my Mamiya and put it to use for this. Two of the shoots took me to British Colombia which I'm embarrassed to say was my first time out West in Canada! The online version of the feature can be viewed here:
