A Year

of Milestones

P

ersonally, it’s been an epic (as my nephew would say) year full of changes for me: my husband graduated from medical school, we became homeowners and relocated to my hometown of Louisville for his residency, we got married, took an incredible honeymoon in Bali, I changed my name and now we’re settling into married life with an adopted Pug named Loki. Whew! It’s truly been wonderful - even if a whirlwind and a bumpy ride at times. Professionally, Bourbon & Beans expanded to Louisville with me, which is exciting. The first big news from the expansion is that we’ve formed an official affiliation with Edible Louisville and the Bluegrass, so stay in touch for developments there. I’m also excited to publish our second GreenGuide of 2013 - a big step for this originally annual publicaton. We have added more articles to keep you engaged and informed; I’m especially excited about our featured interview with Ben Sollee. I’ve loved his music for several years now and really appreciate his attitue towards engaging with his community through biking. Because Ben is a Lexington native, he seemed like a natural fit for this. I’m honored that he took time to fill us in on what the future holds for him (the interview was conducted while Ben was on tour in Montana).

Whew

!

Of course, I don’t do this publication alone. First and foremost, it would not be possible without the financial support of our advertisers - a huge THANK YOU to all of you for supporting what we’re doing here. Another crucial supporter is Bluegrass Greensource (formerly Bluegrass PRIDE). We collaborate with their team (thanks, Schuyler!) to get you up-to-date listings for Live Green Lexington Partners.

Next is my staff. Bethany Graham started as an intern last year and has helped keep me organized on this issue as Assistant GreenGuide Manager. Serving up some of our articles is Michelle Aiello, my main cohort at Bourbon & Beans. I love Michelle’s style and she’s always on deadline, which is a godsend to the entire process. For this issue, we also had the benefit of articles contributed by Mary Jo Harrod, the Public Information Officer at the Kentucky Division of Compliance Assistance. Thanks, Mary Jo! You rock! Then there’s you...our readers. Please send us your feedback as we take it seriously and make improvements for the future. Call, email, text...whatever. We just want to hear from you! I hope you enjoy this issue as much as I have enjoyed putting it together. Cheers,

Distilling Sustainability On the hill by Mary Jo Harrod utside the Bardstown city limits is the Heaven Hill Distilleries, named for William Heavenhill, a frontiersman born in 1783 and on whose land the company sits. Five Shapira brothers, along with other investors, began operating the distillery in 1934, after the repeal of Prohibition. Later, the other investors left the business, and since then, the Shapira family has led Heaven Hill to become the largest family-owned and operated producer and marketer of distilled spirits in the nation. The plant bottled over 12 million cases in 2012. Some of the bourbons produced by Heaven Hill include Elijah Craig, Larcency and Evan Williams.

“Recycling was a big challenge at first–

–now it is part of the process”

A plant with this capacity can produce significant amounts of materials that could either go to a landfill or be recycled. Heaven Hill decided to try recycling as part of their KY EXCEL membership. Setting up a recycling program requires the cooperation of everyone involved, so employees were educated about the importance of recycling and protecting the environment. Kim Harmon, the Environmental Compliance Manager at the distillery, says, “When we started our recycling program in 2011, we tried to find everything that could be recycled and vendors to take the materials. We recycle paper labels, bands around

pallets, aerosol cans, brown paper packing, blue drums, label backing, cardboard, plastic and glass.”

and generated $31,000 in revenue.”

After each successful quarter of recycling, employees are given incentives, such as reusable insulated mugs, Heaven Hill tee shirts that say “Greening the Hill” or a catered lunch, to encourage the success of the program.

“Recycling was a big challenge at first––now it is part of the process,” says Harmon. “In the beginning, finding support among the employees and management was hard due to resistance to change. We had an introduction to the program, training and an awareness campaign, plus, we expressed our appreciation to our employees.”

“To implement the recycling project, we spent $4,000–$5,000 on recycling supplies and an additional $3,000–$4,000 per year for proper waste disposal. We are spending $4,000–6,000 every quarter on incentives, but it is worth it,” she says. “We spent $5,000 on recycling receptacles, but their use has generated larger sums. Through recycling, we have saved $61,000 annually in landfill costs

Heaven Hill purchased hand trucks that were spring-loaded to move the drums of recyclables and an hydraulic pallet jack for the empty glass pallets. A recycling vendor provides gaylords and baling wire. In just seven months’ time, the plant recycled 280 tons of cardboard, plastic and glass. The facility recycled 614 tons in 2012. Department managers are looking in each of

fall/winter 2013 their areas for ways to further reduce waste. Heaven Hill’s plantwide recycling program has resulted in everything having a specific place. Harmon says the program has reduced stress and uncertainty. Where trash had been thrown in millions of small boxes and shrink wrap was flowing out of containers, now there is organization. Truck traffic to the landfill has been reduced from three times a week to one. Each week, two trailers of recyclables leave the plant. When the company president saw the results of the program, he was pleasantly shocked. Harmon credits KY EXCEL, Kentucky’s free environmental leadership program, with garnering support and ownership for the project. A member since 2010, Heaven Hill is one of three distilleries in the program, and it also participates in the state’s Sustainable Spirits summits.

Employees are excited about the difference they are making in their workplace and homes. Due to the employees’ enthusiasm in bringing recyclables from home, Heaven Hill is setting up a larger building, costing $30,000, to handle the volume of materials the employees can bring.

“This has been great! Our recycling program has made us become more responsible stewards in Nelson County,” says Harmon. “People are excited because some recycle everything and others are just learning, but we are changing people’s lives outside the plant.”

fall/winter 2013

It's a Nice Day for a ...

Green Wedding! A

n interview with Kate Harrison of The Green Bride Guide GreenGuide: How did you become passionate about the green/sustainable lifestyle?

Kate Harrison: I grew up in Connecticut and spent my summers in a small house without electricity on the water – so I played outside all summer long. New Haven has a combined sewage system, so whenever there was a hard rain we would not be allowed to go swimming. So I was aware from a very young age of our impact on the environment. In high school I cofounded the first environmental club and have been trying to live a life consistent with my values ever since. What that has meant has changed over time, but the core has remained the same. GG: How did you get started as a green wedding blogger and retailer? KH: My husband and I met at the Yale School of Forestry when I was getting my Master’s and he was getting his Ph.D. We planned our own green wedding in 2007 and I wrote The Green Bride Guide: How to Create an Earth-friendly Wedding on Any Budget (Sourcebooks 2008), based on our experience. I started blogging to keep the book up to date, and to bring it to life with pictures and stories. The rest is history. GG: Tell us more about your own green wedding. KH: We really challenged ourselves to go green as much as possible so we did everything we could think of. A few details included: ƒƒ Local, seasonal and organic food and flowers ƒƒ A 100% green boxed invitation (included an organic chocolate with the dessert reception information, organic tea bag with brunch info, a vintage key and spy glass with event details, a recycled cardboard box and vintage stamps among other things) ƒƒ Recycled paper programs ƒƒ Carbon offset favors ƒƒ Bridesmaids wearing something they already owned ƒƒ I rehabbed a damaged gown and then donated it to Brides Against Breast Cancer ƒƒ An organic cake ƒƒ I wore organic makeup and vintage jewelry ƒƒ Our rings were made from recycled metal GG: In what ways do “normal” weddings leave the biggest footprint? KH: The average wedding produces 400 lbs of garbage and 63 tons of CO2. Taken together, that’s like 8.3 million cars on the road for a year for American weddings. The biggest contributors are guest travel (which is why trying to pick a location central to the majority of your guests is so important), and food (go local!). GG: What were some of the challenges you encountered while trying to plan a green wedding, and what solutions did you find? KH: There are many more options today then there were then, so it took a long time to find the products and services we were looking for – that was the reason I wrote the book. Now you can get 1,000 kinds of re-

fall/winter 2013 cycled paper invitations with soy inks. Back then, stationery stores would look at you like you were crazy. The hardest thing to find was transportation. We tried to rent a biodiesel shuttle – but the company “upgraded” us at the last minute to a stretch limo with a faux fur interior. I almost died when it pulled up. I wrote about it in the book as an important lesson about communication!

GG: What areas of planning green weddings are the most challenging for the bride? KH: The dress is still a hard one. You want to look a certain way, you want the fit to be perfect, and there are still not that many ecodesigners. There are a few great ones, but I think most brides who want to go green will buy a once-worn gown and/or choose a sample dress and consider donating it to charity after the event. GG: Where do you see the Green Bride Guide in 10 years? KH: I hope to continue helping consumers find the solutions they need to live a greener lifestyle. We just launched GreenMomGuide.com and I would like to expand the brand further to offer couples a reliable and robust resource for every part of their married life together. There are so many amazing green products and services that are better for the planet and your health. It has never been easier to go green!

entuckians will want to take advantage of the free services offered by the Kentucky Division of Compliance Assistance (DCA) and its programs. Part of the Department for Environmental Protection, DCA’s free programs are available to assist businesses and citizens of the Commonwealth. The Environmental Compliance Assistance Program (ECAP) is ready to help any small business understand its environmental obligations and how to meet them. Need permits? Staff members can help you navigate through the process for more timely permit issuance. The division also offers workshops on a variety of topics and will make onsite visits when requested. KY EXCEL is the state’s free environmental leadership program. Anyone–individuals, businesses, schools and organizations–in Kentucky can join. Members are not only doing projects of their choosing that protect the environment, but they are noticing substantial monetary savings. Call if you want suggestions of ways to go green. The Kentucky Brownfield Redevelopment Program is here to help communities, nonprofits and prospective purchasers with their brownfield projects. Brownfields are properties that are contaminated or perceived to be and may include old gas stations, mine-scarred lands, factories and other sites. The program offers a variety of services, at no charge, to those who are interested in turning problem properties into economic and community development opportunities. Services include assessments, tax incentives and the services of the Help Desk, which include serving as a liaison, ombudsman and interagency coordinator for a project; providing information about financial resources; answering questions about statutes, regulations and policies; and much more. Since receiving a revolving loan fund grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, even more financial assistance will be available in the near future. Call 800-926-8111, e-mail EnvHelp@ky.gov or visit the website at www.dca.ky.gov/Pages/default.aspx, and get to know our programs. We are here to help you!

tion of people and machines, we process about 25 tons of material an hour.”

Right now, she’s pleased to report that Lexington is getting better at recycling. “The number we’ve seen is increasing,” she says. “During the 2013 fiscal year, we processed 35,000 tons of material. That’s five more tons than we processed in 2012.” About 80% of that material comes from the Fayette County area, but Waste Management also picks up recycling from about ten surrounding counties and privately owned businesses.

Despite that impressive number, Esther has found that the larger goals are still in front of us. “In 2009, about 80% of our landfill material was either recyclable or compostable.” The ultimate goal is for Lexington to be a zero-waste city. But in order to achieve that, more participation, education and mindfulness has to take place. “We are working on accepting different types of material,” says Esther. “We will

With only a handful of full-time employees, the city’s recycling team is lean and mean. “It’s a little tricky to gauge how many people are involved because we have our city employees, our drivers who do residential and commercial collections, our machine operators and our pickers. With a combina-

People are often afraid or unsure of what to do with those materials, so they end up sitting in garages. ” For the past seven years, LFCUG’s Division of Waste Management has partnered with Bluegrass Greensource (formerly BluegrassPRIDE) to work with local businesses and not-for-profits to increase awareness and education about recycling, composting, grease disposal, rainwater conservation and much more. In return for signing up with the livegreenlexington partner program, the organizations receive positive PR and recognition for the steps they’re taking to be green. It seems to be a cycle that produces good results. Esther feels good about where we’re going. “I believe Lexington is interested and committed. At our first workshop, we had over 400 people. Now we do ten to twelve workshops a year. It seems like the time is right – people want to learn new behaviors, and we are thrilled.” Visit lexingtonkygov/recycle to learn more

Aluminum Cans: Can be recycled indefinitely. Melted into bars and sold to Novelis in Berea, KY (the world’s largest aluminum recycling plant).

Cardboard: Collected, baled and shipped to International Paper in Maysville to be made into new cardboard products or fiberboard. Plastic Bags: Currently cannot be recycled - they get tangled in machines. Kroger, Wal-Mart and Kohl’s all have plastic bag recycling

bins. The bags are taken to Helix Poli Indiana and made into new bags. Styrofoam: Difficult to recycle. Containers are mostly air so shipping is costly. Currently, only clean (no food residue) Styrofoam can be recycled, and few facilities offer it. Esther recommends reusable containers or encouraging local restaurants to switch to recyclable materials. Milk Jugs: Sent to Play Mart in Somerset and made into playground equipment. Other plastic bottles go to Signode, a plastic banding company in Florence.

BenCelloSollee Traveler W

by Michelleo Aiello

e’re proud to claim Ben Sollee as one of our own. The Lexington native’s distinct cello playing, unique mix of folk, bluegrass, jazz and R&B and stirring voice sets him apart from most traditional folk or bluegrass musicians. His style involves plucking strings and using percussive bow techniques to create a surprising and original sound. His 2008 debut, Learning to Bend earned him a place in NPR’s Morning Edition’s Top Ten Great Unknown Artists of the Year. Since then, he’s been involved in a wide variety of musical and artistic projects. But Ben and his fellow musicians take a different approach to touring. Instead of piling into a van for a cross-country road trip, they tour by bike whenever they can. We chatted with Ben about music, roots, and life on the road. GreenGuide: What’s your favorite bourbon? Ben Sollee: For casual hangs, it’s easily Bulleit. For special occasions, I pull out the George T. Stagg. What’s your favorite bean? Most certainly, magic beans! But lima beans are also pretty tasty.

You were born and raised in Lexington. Can you talk about how growing up in this region of the country has influenced you – both musically and personally? Geographically and culturally, Kentucky seems to be in between so many things. Like myself, the Bluegrass’ identity has been defined by how it can distill something unique from a wild collage of influences. So, there’s this feeling of being connected to everything and no one thing at the same time. I studied classical cello in school, played R&B music with my family, and aurally learned old fiddle tunes from my grandfather. In the middle of it all, I found my own style. You’re known for your Ditch the Van bike tours and you once traveled 330 miles to the Bonnaroo festival with a cello strapped to your bicycle. Can you talk about the physical effort involved? It seems like after riding 60-70 miles a day, the last thing you’d want to do is perform! As a band, riding our bikes to a show completely changes the road experience. Typically, we might drive five to six hours at a time. It’s sedentary, and often, everyone in the band is focused on different tasks. Then we get there


fall/winter 2013 and get psyched up for the show. On our bikes, everyone puts a tremendous amount of effort into just getting to the show. Then we settle in for the performance. So the shows tend to take on a more carefree, conversational feel.

Bluegrass Greensource: New Name, Same Mission by Mary Jo Harrod

B

luegrass Greensource, formerly known as Bluegrass PRIDE, which is based in Lexington, is an environmental nonprofit serving 18 counties in Central Kentucky. Executive Director Amy Sohner says the goal of Greensource is to help adults and children, alike, to change their behavior in small ways to benefit the environment, with a focus on water quality, waste reduction and energy efficiency. As a member of KY EXCEL, Kentucky’s environmental leadership program, Bluegrass Greensource has undertaken many projects, including one designed to teach educators and students in Central Kentucky about coal energy and various alternatives. Greensource’s Coal as Energy Education Project (CEEP) provided professional development opportunities for 20 science and social studies teachers of grades 4-12, from Anderson, Estill, Fayette, Garrard, Jessamine, Lincoln and Mercer counties. The teachers were taken to an underground coal mine in eastern Kentucky, visited a school outfitted with a geothermal system and learned about solar power in Berea’s EcoVillage. Other projects take place at the Greensource office, such as providing a single-stream recycling dumpster that is available for all businesses surrounding the Greensource office to use. Staff members have bins beside their desk for recycling.

Every person has a power strip for computers and other office equipment. When not in use, the power strips are turned off. Some other energy-savers include programmable thermostats. Because the office has two electric meters, a friendly competition was held among Greensource’s 14 staff members to see which side of the office could save the most electricity. The Greensource office has reusable plates and utensils that are taken to events or meetings and taken home to wash. Cloth towels are used in the restroom and kitchen areas instead of paper. Green cleaning products are used to clean the office. Staff members extended their environmental efforts outside to stencil storm drains in the parking lot as a reminder not to throw trash and cigarette butts out, since they eventually reach local streams. With the availability of the recycling dumpster in the back parking lot, Greensource and area businesses have reduced the number of times dumpsters are tipped, saving money and decreasing the amount of materials sent to local landfills. For the electricity usage competition, one side of the office saved $50 a month and the other saved $30. This inspired staff members to look for new ways to cut energy waste. As with any project, there were challenges to overcome. The CEEP project needed funds to transport teachers to the various sites. Greensource requested, and was granted, an amendment to the budget that would increase each school’s field trip allocation. “As a nonprofit, funding is the biggest challenge,” explains Sohner, about the many

programs they would like to offer. “It’s hard for us to do things that are not covered by grants, because grants are for specific things. People don’t understand that there are small easy ways to make a difference. Small things, like caulking, can make a big impact.” In the CEEP program, teachers learned to use hands-on activities to teach their classes about energy conservation, origination and alternatives. The overwhelming response from the participants was that the workshop was very beneficial and gave the teachers more practical experience with the sources of energy used in the state. The lessons resulted in student-led communitywide presentations about energy. Due to the outreach and training for the teachers, a large number of students were also educated about the various energy alternatives available. Sohner says, “We try to help teachers to teach by using real-life examples, which makes it more relevant.” Greensource also provides the Live Green Lexington Partner (LGLP) listings to publications such as GreenGuide, which in turn provides each LGLP member with a free listing “Environmental issues have become more prevalent than they were 11 years ago,” says Sohner. “This has made things easier. Bluegrass Greensource provides a service welcomed by everyone. We target everyone, including people who do not call themselves environmentalists. We serve a niche that no one else serves.”

Organizing the troops: Jamie Aramini means business about sustainability

G

eorge Bernard Shaw said, “People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.” After a few personal setbacks, Somerset native Jamie Aramini decided to start a positive project that connected her with likeminded people in her community. The result was Sustainable Kentucky, a fun blog focusing on the people behind the sustainable farming movement. These days, Jamie is involved in a number of community events, publications and projects –all with the goal of building communities through local farming and food. And did we mention that she’s also a single mom and home schooler of three? “When I’m working on a project, everything stops –even the dishes and the laundry”, she says with a laugh. “I become extremely focused, but I’m also careful not to over-commit.” Jamie started Sustainable Kentucky in 2011, after family member fell sick and she and her husband divorced. It was originally meant to be an informative and educational blog, but as soon as Jamie started putting her feet on farms, she was hooked. “I really needed a positive outlet, and I wanted to meet people who shared similar views. I also saw a need for information about sustainable farming methods.” Since then, she’s been inspired and uplifted by the people she’s met and the good work they’re doing. Visiting and interviewing scores of young people and families who are involved in farming is encouraging for Jamie. “I’m excited to see so many people getting involved in sustainable projects. They’re very passionate and optimistic. Who knows? Maybe in a few years, they’ll burn out and start eating at McDonald’s, but right now they’re putting everything on the line to grow food for the community.” Her personal view on sustainable agriculture in the United States is

that it’s changing, but not as quickly as it should be. She finds that many people still don’t know or care where their food comes from. “My farmer friends get discouraged when people comment that their produce is too expensive. They don’t realize how much work goes into running a small farm.” She believes, like many social issues, the power is in the hands of the consumers. “We have to buy from local producers all the time,” she says. “Not just sometimes, but exclusively. That’s the only way local food will come down in price and become the norm.” When asked what characteristics she’s seen in the more successful local farms, Jamie mentioned that the farms that start small and try to grow without debt have seen the most profit and longevity. “It can be tricky to track profits from seed to table, but it’s essential to know how much money you’re making and spending.” Jamie’s other projects include the Green Living Fair (taking place in March 2014 in Somerset) –an all day affair with workshops, demonstrations, art, music and kids activities. Some of the more popular workshops from the previous year were fermenting, beer & mead making, mushroom cultivation, and DIY solar panels. She’s also a contributor to STORY magazine and organizes The Market on Main, a modern Thursday night farmer’s market in Somerset. “Sometimes I think, whose life is this? How did I get here? But I followed my passions, and this is where they took me.”
