Caitlin Harrington-Smith

I support the North America team on a wide range of projects. I’m passionate about circular economy innovation, zero waste initiatives, and climate action. Outside of work, I enjoy cooking and eating pasta, kayaking with my dog in Oregon, and seeing live music.

Caitlin has experience working with start-ups, NGOs, and city agencies to design and implement circular economy programs. She is interested in waste reduction projects and finding alternatives to single use plastic.

Career History

Before joining Eunomia, Caitlin worked on several waste initiatives in New York City. She has worked on an EPA funded grant project to minimize single-use plastics in corporate cafeterias. She also managed operations for a social enterprise focused on reuse and repair with the goal of minimizing waste. Prior to that she helped implement a zero-waste pilot for a nonprofit on New York’s Governors Island and assisted with city-wide organics composting programs at the NYC Department of Sanitation’s Sustainability and Recycling Bureau.

After graduating with a B.A. focused in environmental economics from Barnard College, she helped draft the college’s Climate Action Plan report integrating input from many stakeholders into one cohesive strategy. Currently, she is completing her M.S. in Sustainability Management at Columbia University. Within this program, she has worked with real-world companies, performing greenhouse gas inventories and life cycle assessments according to GHG Protocol standards.
