Description

In this episode we delve into environmental issues surrounding the grow and processing of cannabis products.  We have an in depth conversation with Kaitlin Urso who is an environmental consultant for small businesses in Colorado. Her industries of focus are commercial cannabis (hemp-CBD & Marijuana) and craft brewing. 

Kaitlin helps protect Colorado's air, land, and water quality by enabling small business owners/operators to achieve, maintain and go beyond compliance with federal and state environmental regulations through technical assistance, education, and communication. 

She provides technical assistance for small businesses by calculating pollution levels, identifying process efficiency and pollution prevention opportunities, determining applicable federal and state environmental regulations, assessing compliance status with those regulations, and conducting voluntary on-site compliance and sustainability audits. 

As her position is quite unique, she provides national assistance to other state, federal and local entities, including consulting on  air quality, stormwater management, solid and hazardous waste management, waste reporting, as well as on pollution prevention, carbon footprints, and sustainability.  She is a tremendous resource for sustainability in the cannabis industry.  Please take a listen.
