After 17 years as a sales rep for a California engineered
wood products company, Andy Gale and his wife Cindy took a year off,
hopped in an RV and toured the country. In
Southern California he missed the seasons. In Northern Michigan, he
found them, and he and his wife fell in love with Traverse City and
decided to settle here.
2008, he decided to look for a green career. He decided he wanted to
start a nonprofit that would encourage recycling and donate proceeds
from the sale of collected material to charity.
