RE: [greenyes] Michele Raymond passes away after battle with cancer

Michelle was an unsung hero in the EPR and Zero Waste Movement!! Her Take
It Back Conference was the real deal, and her passing is not only very sad
but a set-back to our work. I will miss having her in the world... she was
a high-energy passionate woman and she did some great things.

Michele Raymond was not only a real character with a lot of personal flair,
but I credit her hugely as the "midwife" of EPR in North America. By
targeting the market she did (product brand-owners) and giving them a
wake-up call that EPR is coming and helping them prepare for it, Michele
moved things forward in ways that those of us on the outside could not have
done. She was such a hard worker and left a great legacy.
