Sarah Pierpont started her career in the recycling field as the coordinator of the Recycle Santa Fe Art Festival in 2005 while she was also working to keep forest trimmings out of landfills as part of a Collaborative Forest Restoration Project. As the Executive Director of the NM Recycling Coalition, Sarah is inspired by the less obvious benefits that recycling brings to communities, such as economic development, jobs, community building and quality of life. She holds a degree in Geology from Colorado College and a master’s equivalent in Geography from UCLA. She lives in Santa Fe with her husband and two daughters.
