I think Mary's vision statement was great! And I like your statement more as
a background piece, or as part of a list of objectives and tasks.

Here's my stab at a mission statement:

"The Grassroots Recycling Network (GRN) is an ad hoc coalition of recycling
business people, environmentalists, waste facility opponents and others
dedicated to conserving our human and natural resources. GRN members want to
stop subsidies for mining, harvesting and wasting our natural resources and
oppose practices that transfer environmental liabilities to future
generations . GRN works to achieve a sustainable economy by advocating
public and private policies and programs to reduce, reuse and recycle
discarded materials."
