March Review: Pashon Murray & Detroit Dirt

During West Michigan Sustainable Business Forum’s fourth annual conference at Cathedral Square Conference Center, keynote speaker Pashon Murray, founder of Detroit Dirt, gave insight on composting and the future of waste to energy.

Murray has an unrelenting drive for waste reduction, recycling, and reuse of materials. She is helping to change the carbon footprint of Detroit through revitalizing neighborhoods, finding solutions for everyday waste, and eliminating trips to the landfill. In 2010 Murray co-founded Detroit Dirt, a local composting and biomass collection company that specializes in providing compost and biomass solutions for the metro Detroit community. Detroit Dirt’s closed-loop model process was designed by Murray to help revitalize Detroit. In 2015 she founded International Dirt whose primary focus is to create programs, tools and consult on strategies that will integrate zero waste practices.
