For the last decade, Jill TrAshley has been spearheading efforts toward more efficient and responsible waste streams in the festival industry within the United States and internationally in Costa Rica. Engaging in creative pursuits and empowering initiatives like #ElixirsasMixers through The NOHM Project, the #EndSingleUse campaign pioneered by Lucidity Festival, and the Envision Festival #CompostCrashCourse via Facebook, TrAshley focuses on collaboration and cooperative action, employing this righteous alliance in a myriad of endeavors.
Currently TrAshley is working full time on The NOHM Project, which was birthed in 2015 in efforts to bring more conversation and consumption into awareness while in an event setting. When choosing a business status she incorporated The NOHM Project as a Benefit Corporation in efforts to keep transparency and integrity alive when it comes to The NOHM’s business practices from the ground up. This transient project is based in Asheville, NC.
Join Jill TrAshley on the road and in the greater Asheville area as she takes a deep dive in building a zero waste environment while leading a new discussion on waste streams, conscious consumption, and how you can help transform the norm by taking the conversation home with you.
