It’s SKAMpede Festival 2020, a summer’s day, and Sadie Fox is on her bike pulling a trailer behind her as she whizzes back and forth between venues. The trailer is stock-full of buckets each with their own purpose from recycling to compost. Sadie is teaching people as she fills them up, giving interesting informational tidbits such as why chip bags are saved for recycling and not garbage (the inner lining can actually be recycled).

“Recycling is economics. Like the stock market, it changes. Think of it as batching,” Sadie says.
