Leonard Robinson Is Enviro Bro

During the day Leonard Robinson, left, is Chief Deputy Director of the California Department of Toxic Substances Control. Once a week Robinson hosts a weekly one-hour radio program called "Going Green With Leonard Robinson." The show airs on KDEE 97.7 FM in Sacramento and the station is a volunteer-powered, listener-supported station owned and operated by the California Black Chamber of Commerce Foundation. He discusses hot-button topics, such as green-collar jobs, pollution prevention, greening businesses, environmental justice, green chemistry and electronic recycling.

He infuses his show with humor and lightheartedness. Robinson has worked in the environmental field for 35 years, starting out as an environmental safety manager for a steel mill in Southern California. The Going Green radio program is more than a hobby for Enviro Bro. It’s the culmination of a life’s passion and work. Robinson wants to give people the tools for making more eco-friendly decisions, like paying bills online or taking canvas bags to the grocery store—little tipping points that add up to a big difference. On air, he promotes green programs, such as the Take-It-Back Partnership that offers free, local ways for Californians to recycle end-of-life products, such as compact fluorescent light bulbs, electronic waste and batteries.
