RE CALL #3 -Brief report

We had our third conference call on April 18th. Joining the call were
Rick Anthony, Gary Liss, Mary T'Kash (finally got through!), Jennifer
Leahy (ILSR, for Neil and Brenda), Lynn Landes (Pennsylvania Sierra
Club), and myself. I will just note highlights and action items.

Note that Dan Knapp has asked us to accept his colleague at Urban Ore,
Dave Williamson, as his proxy on the steering committee. Dan wants to
focus on the nuts and bolts of starting total recycling facilities
(which is critical to our campaign) and is less interested in policy;
Dave is interested in policy.


1. Draft Issue Papers Dave Williamson will draft the Total
Recycling policy statement and get it to the rest of us next week. I
will make a case for a somewhat different message than 'tax bads' in a
separate message from this one. I will put all three policy statements
in a common format, and distribute. Everybody please participate by
responding to drafts as they come off the press. **Fourth conference
call in three weeks: Wednesday, May 15th.**

2. First Steering Committee & Network Meeting, Sunday June 16th,
Newport Beach CA, (before the CRRA Conference) Each of us
immediately contact key activists we would like to invite to the meeting
(for hashing out a strategy and long-term recycling agenda). Rick,
Neil/Brenda and I contact the folks we sent the Turner proposal to.
Activists will have to find their own way there, but CRRA will help with
accommodations and waive the conference fee if folks want to stay for
Monday or Tuesday. Get names and addresses to Gary Liss and he will do
a follow-up invitation/welcome mailing. We want to limit the meeting to
people likely to take action on our messages (as opposed to those who
want to do studies, and those prevented from speaking out because of
their position); we'd like 15 or 20, with as much geographic
representation as possible. Act soon to lock in good airfares; Orange
Co. Airport is 10 min. and free shuttle to conference; L.A. Airport is
1-plus hour and $50 ride.


Draft Issue Papers. Dave W. is working on developing Dan's piece on
Total Recycling into a policy document, so we didn't have that to
discuss. Some hadn't seen the Anthony-Kirkpatrick piece either. But we
spent a fair amount of time discussing messages generally. I have some
ideas about the 'tax waste' message that I will write up in a separate
message. Rick proposed that one person edit all three position
statements for consistency of style, and I volunteered to take the first
crack at it.

Names. We tentatively decided on the following names for this group
and primary campaign, pending ratification at the June 16th meeting:
Grassroots Recycling Network, organizing the Total Recycling Campaign,
using the GreenYes Listserve (set up by CRRA).
