What is your name?       

Jay Edwards

Where do you work and what do you do?           

My main role is as a financial advisor, on-boarding with Waddell & Reed. I'm also active in the area of sustainability consulting through both Pack2Sustain and EndInMind Design.

Tell us how you embrace recycling/sustainability in your home or workplace?    

In 2013 I worked with Chicago artist Sheila Arora to launch the RecyclerSack(TM), which elevates at-home and in-room recycling, especially in under-served areas like bathrooms. Sheila's art is consistently exciting and life-affirming, and provides a great match for our product. Examples can be found at

What motivates you to recycle and live sustainably?

Stewardship of our only Earth is something that every one of us can affect through decisions that are made daily. Recycling is one of the most accessible ways to preserve what we all have.

If you were an animal, which one would you be and why?           

Likely a dolphin because of my love of the sea
