"Kids don't even remember the fruit anymore. We don't even see the fruit anymore! How about we just get a juicer and some apples and have kids chop them up and throw them in the juicer and make it a fun game?" -- Africa Engo on Growing Good

On this episode of Growing Good, Alessandra Iavarone is joined in the studio by Eva Radke of Film Biz Recycling. Film Biz Recycling is a non-profit organization that reuses and distributes film props and equipment, keeping tons of waste out of our landfill every year. Tune in to hear about how Eva started the company after working on film sets for years, Film Biz Recycling's involvement in charities, and starting a business while raising a child. Learn more about Eva's space, and the place she envisions for it in the community. This episode has been brought to you by Whole Foods.

"That's how it got started- community and communication. You're not alone even if in your house it's just you and your kid. There's a parallel working on a film because it's a microcosm... Why are we not talking to one another?"

"It's important that this industry waste is a platform for creativity and emerging artists." -- Eva Radke on Growing Good
