Notes from the Staff

An important function of the Zero Waste Network is to promote the next generation of environmental professionals. This month’s note from the staff is written by Tom Fort, an intern at Zero Waste.

“I found out about the Zero Waste Network through the Americorp program. I started out as a volunteer and now have moved up to a paid position. I have been working here for over a year now, and I think it is a great. This is my first real job, and all I can say is that I couldn’t have been luckier. From my time at Zero Waste I have gained very valuable experience while working for a good cause.

For the last few months I’ve been working on uploading and maintaining the online form for the Resource Exchange Network for Eliminating Waste (RENEW) project. Part of this project was the creation of metadata for each page. Metadata is what Google (and other search engines) see when they look at your site. After looking around for a bit I stumbled across a helpful tool to see the metadata, and other interesting information from your page.”
