UM Grad, Expert on Plastic Pollution, to Give Annual Sustainable Business Council Lecture

Small Business Council Annual Lecture:  The Story of Stuff

The Sustainable Business Council and the School of Business Administration are excited to present Triple Bottom Time: Transforming Businesses from Linear to Circular Economies, featuring Stiv Wilson, Changemaker and Director of Campaigns for The Story of Stuff Project.

Wilson, a UM graduate recently featured in a New York Times article on plastic pollution, will call on students, community members and local businesses to transform their insights into action and place social, environmental and economic principles at the forefront of their decision-making.

Wilson brings over a decade of experience in grassroots advocacy, systems innovation and campaign strategy to The Story of Stuff Project. He is an expert on waste and plastic pollution who frequently speaks about solutions to the inefficiencies in the materials economy all over the world.  Wilson will highlight specific examples of business and consumer models existing within circular economy frameworks that are proven to be cost-effective and rewarding.

Wilson's lecture is made possible by generous donations from the UM School of Business Administration, Axiom, BalanceTech, Goldsmith's Bed & Breakfast, The Buttercup Market & Cafe, Missoula Independent, and Missoula Indoor Ads. The Sustainable Business Council hopes you will join them in welcoming Stiv Wilson back to Missoula by attending the annual lecture, the business reception or both!
