Founder • Board President • Executive Director
David Gardiepy started EcoGeneration as a Facebook group in 2017 to share information and organize litter pick-ups around Cottage Grove, OR. It grew quickly as people looked for new ways to deal with their recyclable trash.
In 2020 EcoGeneration became an incorporated non-profit in the state of Oregon.
In addition to organizing weekly plastic collections for local residents; EcoGeneration has worked to find recycling streams for other waste materials which would otherwise go into landfills. Gardiepy has built relationships with a network of 29 different recycling companies all over the country, each of which takes and processes different materials.
