Neil Rhein, Principal
Over the past decade, I have volunteered many hours as the founder and Executive Director of Keep Mansfield (MA) Beautiful and, more recently, Keep Massachusetts Beautiful. My experiences at both of these organizations convinced me that the only way to make lasting change in peoples’ environmental attitudes and actions is through education.
Recycling and waste management are confusing topics, so I try to bring a fresh, creative approach to my communications campaigns. Whether it’s teaching young children about the evils of litter and the benefits of single stream recycling, or helping municipalities reduce recycling contamination, I bring my passion and my 25+ years of communications experience to the table.
At GreenCents Communications, I teach children and adults across the great state of Massachusetts about proper recycling and waste management practices. I want people to understand WHY it’s important to recycle as much as possible and HOW to do it correctly. And I want the learning process to be fun for all involved.
My previous experience includes 15 years at Fidelity Investments in Boston, where I was editor of their quarterly magazine, Fidelity Focus. I left Fidelity in 2005 to launch Bull’s-eye Communications, where I provide editorial services (copywriting, editing, proofreading) and graphic design services to corporate clients.
I earned a B.A. in communications from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and an M.A. in Business Communications and Public Relations from Emerson College.
