Kathryn Garcia is running for Mayor of New York City

Kathryn Garcia is running for Mayor of New York City. We are endorsing her because she is a leader who won’t only talk about climate change but will act.  She always made achieving Zero Waste her top priority as NYC Sanitation Commissioner.

Garcia spearheaded the City’s overhaul of the private carting industry and helped create a Commercial Waste Zone program that will improve air quality, decrease traffic congestion, reduce pollution, and create better working conditions for workers. She launched the largest composting program in the U.S., helped ban styrofoam, and piloted the first fully electric refuse truck. She also proposed a comprehensive resiliency plan that will protect all communities along our 500 miles of coastline from future storms. Garcia is the champion we need in City Hall to fight the climate crisis.
