2022-09-21 12:54 PM | Deleted user

Reuse Minnesota is excited to announce a partnership with Rethos: Places Reimagined to host Minnesota GreenCorps member Josh Hauf for the next eleven months. Minnesota GreenCorps is an AmeriCorps program coordinated by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and focused on training the next generation of environmental professionals. Rethos will serve as the host site and Josh will split his time between the two organizations. Josh's projects with Reuse Minnesota will include conference and event support, blog writing, and reuse storytelling. Reuse Minnesota members can look for communication from Josh in the coming months!

Welcome Josh! Please tell us a little about yourself.

I just graduated from the University of Minnesota-TC in May with a B.S. in Environmental Science, Policy and Management, and have been in the Twin Cities for three years now. As a Sustainability Intern for Aramark, I began and am continuing to lead a Fair Trade campaign for the University which is currently running and on track to be completed this upcoming Fall. I am from the Black Hills of South Dakota which fostered a love of hiking, kayaking, camping, and everything outside. I enjoy thrifting, collecting vinyl, utilizing my green thumb, and trying to explore the area a little bit more.

What is your favorite Minnesota season?

My favorite Minnesota season has to be Fall because my wardrobe is certainly geared most towards chilly but not cold. However, this past year I did find that MN springtime is a close second! 

What's a hobby you've always wanted to get into but haven't yet?

A hobby that I have been trying to get into recently is amateur screenwriting, but I haven’t been able to carve out quite enough time. I am looking forward to hopefully exploring storytelling more this upcoming year!

Reuse Minnesota was founded in 2012 and is a member-based nonprofit that supports repair, resale, and rental businesses, bringing visibility to the reuse sector as a means to lower our state's impact on the environment.
