illustrated guide to better recycling and how to reduce single-use plastics.
As a Legal Associate at the Surfrider Foundation’s Plastic Pollution
Initiative, Jennie leads policy efforts and litigation efforts to reduce
plastic pollution across the United States. 

By immersing herself in the solid waste and plastic reduction world related to
plastic bag laws Jennie gained expertise in recycling and waste systems. She
felt it was vital to share her knowledge with the wider public, particularly
to help them understand the issues relating to recycling, and how to fix it.
Soon after the passage of NYC’s bag law, Jennie began writing her book:
Can I Recycle This?

staff of the Surfrider Foundation, where she continues to contribute her plastic pollution policy expertise to
Surfrider’s nationwide network. Jennie is based in New York, where she lives
with her husband and family.
