Chasing arrows was produced by Peak Plastic Foundation, an Emmy Award-winning filmmaking collective working toward ending fossil fuels.
AMBR is a coalition founded by four of the original pioneers of mission-driven, community-based nonprofit recycling in the U.S. Together, we are guiding new recycling policies and infrastructure investments to rebuild credible, transparent recycling systems. AMBR’s founding members are Eco-Cycle, Ecology Center, Eureka Recycling, and Recycle Ann Arbor.
