Basecamp Guests: Deb Menich, Chris Johnson, Bridget Anderson, Josh Sawislak

Episode Excerpt:
Sustainability is a large challenge for the entire universe. Veterans are critical in understanding it. They grow and are trained for becoming better citizens and leaving a better footprint… How can reuse something or repurpose it? Sustainability is a boots on the ground issue. It’s a big picture issue when it comes to how corporations handle things.
-Deb Menich
