“There has never been a more important time to come together in service of our planet,” says Heather Watkins, CRO and Co-Founder of Bold Reuse. “Billy Afghan brings to Bold Reuse a career of service – leading people, organizations, and communities to rethink ways of work and systems that benefit all stakeholders. We are leveraging Billy’s experience to pursue our ambitions for broader community reach through partnerships with large enterprises committed to caring for all stakeholders.”
Bold Reuse serves leading brands, and their consumers, seeking to actively participate in the circular economy by eliminating single-use products. Together with their clients, Bold Reuse has successfully reduced landfill waste by over 3 million pounds, through their affordable and reusable packaging solutions.

When leaders embrace their realities, people can come together in productive, imaginative conversations to create the positive, desirable futures needed now for our communities and our world. That’s the spirit of Bold Reuse and why I’m excited to be on their journey of growth and impact.”
