Laurel Environmental Group's mission is to create jobs while avoiding unnecessary waste and exportation.

Company Description…

Laurel Environmental Group is a niche company that recycles street lights removed for LED conversions. Our mission is to eliminate unnecessary waste through our unique and green recycling process. We leverage our goal of waste reduction with a social driven mission of job creation and education wherever we go.

I started my business because…

I wanted to do something that made an impact. I saw that there was not only a need for my business but an opportunity to create a better option than what was currently available in the recycling industry. It was motivating to be a female in a very male-dominated line of work.

What makes my company unique…

Our recycling process allows glass, plastic, lamps, and several other items to remain out of landfills, yielding hundreds of thousands of pounds recycled annually. Our mission is to create jobs while avoiding unnecessary waste and exportation.

Mantra I live by…

“We are never tired, so long as we can see far enough” – Emerson.

You should vote for me because…

We need more women in recycling and we need more people saving the planet!

Top 3 goals for my business are…

  1. Offer healthcare benefits to my employees.
  2. Create an international location concept.
  3. Further diversify my business offerings by adding consulting services.

Women entrepreneurs are…

Creative, thoughtful, and determined.

Being a Tory Burch Foundation Fellow would allow me to…

I have only just scratched the surface of what I think my company can become. I believe the Tory Burch Foundation can give me the tools I need to push my social entrepreneurship vision forward. Support and inspiration are two of the most important drivers in entrepreneurship and I know this foundation would provide both. If selected, I would use the education grant from this fellowship to pursue the Stanford Executive Program in Social Entrepreneurship. I would be very proud to be a Tory Burch Foundation Fellow.
