ARIZONA GOOD BUSINESS Jeremiah Rosenthal with Green Bin Dorie Morales with Green Living Magazine and Cameron Jarman with Keep Nature Wild
On this episode of Arizona Good Business Radio, we talk to a range of individuals who are part of the movement in making sure Arizona is thinking about a sustainable future. From making moving a little bit greener to spreading the word about "plogging" ( picking up trash while jogging), we explore the daily choices and lifestyle changes one can start tomorrow to make impactful change.
Join Arizona Good Business Radio to hear from local companies who are:
Centering purpose at the forefront of business
Creating social well-being for the community
Prioritizing sustainability and positive environmental practices
Growing strong company cultures through building authentic teams
Ensuring diversity, equity, and inclusion are involved in all business decisions
Arizona Good Business Radio features local business leaders that are redefining what it means to do good business.
Green Bin rents eco-friendly moving boxes for local home and office moves. Renting bins costs less than buying cardboard boxes and delivery and pick-up is included Valleywide. No assembly or tape is required. Green bins are reused 400+ times before being recycled, reducing the environmental impact of local moves.
Every moving box rental package includes 100% recycled packing paper, four-wheel dolly and labels. And a portion of every sale is donated to the Arizona Sustainability Alliance who uses the funds to plant trees in low-income communities within the Valley.
Passion for solving problems is Jeremiah Rosenthal’s driving force. This drive is what prompted him to start Green Bin. Prior to launching Green Bin in January Jeremiah was working in start-ups and in customer success roles in Arizona and California.

At Keep Nature Wild, we physically pick up one pound of trash for every product sold. Since 2016, we’ve enlisted tens of thousands of volunteers to help keep this promise and our collective goal is to remove 1,000,000 lbs. of trash by 2023.
Cameron Jarman is a fourth-generation Arizonan, a true desert/forest hybrid from both Tempe and Pinetop. He graduated from Brigham Young University-Idaho, with a major in Business and Finance.
Cameron hikes, he kayaks, he fishes, he hunts birds, and he plays ping pong. A bucket list item of his soon to be crossed off is to participate in a multiple-day, guided rafting trip down the Grand Canyon.
He has two dogs, Ruby and Rosie, and if he could do one thing other than Keep Nature Wild, it would be to adopt puppies, train them, and give them to good families.
