Steel City to Green City: World of Recycling and Management Services village

The beacon of green light is shining bright from the city of Pueblo. Pueblo
is located in Southern Colorado and is known as one of the largest steel
producing cities in the United States. Now it will be known as one of the
pioneers of the green ecolution.

Green industries, Green gatherings, and Green activists are coming out of
the wood works creating a bastion of opportunity and collaboration that is
the fire behind the green movement in Pueblo, CO. In order to make green
jobs a reality while addressing the triple bottom line; a pipeline must be
created.

Pueblo, CO is a city that does not have a recycling program. One group has
emerged to lead the pack the Sustainable Economic Environmental Consortium
or SEEC.

The SEEC is the union of non-profits, eco-activists, local government, for
profit entities, and entrepreneurs. The Happy Worm Herders, directed by
Carolyn Kelly, answered the call of duty to create the enterprise that
brings recycling and a new green manufacturing industry to Pueblo, CO.

The twenty-year vision pins Pueblo, CO as the recycling and remanufacturing
hub for Southeastern Colorado and neighboring states and making Pueblo
a zero waste city! Currently plans estimate that 150 Green jobs that will
create the following industries:

– Home heating wood/organic pellets

– Rubber mulch and other rubber products

– Alternative Daily Cover (ADC): cloth, paper, cardboard

– Hydroseeding mix

– Plastics: lumber, fencing, building materials, park benches, other
plastic products

– Other consumer goods made from recycled materials

The Eco-lution is alive and well in the hub of Southern Colorado and as one
for the founding members of the Sustainable Economic Environmental
Consortium I look forward to making the “Dream ReBorn” a reality in Pueblo,
CO. The city that was founded at the confluence of the Arkansas River and
the Fountain Creek now stands at the confluence of bridging the old gray
economy to the new green collar economy.
