Rethos is excited to announce a partnership with Reuse Minnesota 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 has already been working with Rethos on event planning, creating blog posts, class packaging and standardization, as well as creating an original salvage toolkit for communities looking to pursue a deconstruction project. We hope to make deconstruction and building reuse more accessible to greater Minnesota and support more communities looking to preserve their historic places.
A little bit about Josh:
Josh recently graduated from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in May with a B.S. in Environmental Science, Policy and Management, and has been in the Twin Cities area for three years. As a Sustainability Intern for Aramark, he began and continues to lead a Fair Trade campaign for the University which is currently running and on track to be completed this upcoming Fall. He hails from the Black Hills of South Dakota which fostered a love of hiking, kayaking, camping, and everything outside. He thoroughly enjoys thrifting, collecting vinyl, utilizing his green thumb, and exploring the Twin Cities more. Josh is excited to begin his year as a GreenCorps member and to make connections with leaders in sustainability, waste, and reuse!
